Question Mandrake 10 install CD won't boot

I don't know if this has been addressed or is a known issue or not.

I downloaded the mandrake community download 10.0 iso's, verified md5sum, and burned them. My pc would not boot from CD 1. I burned it again and checked cdrecord exit status - wouldn't boot.

A7N8X Deluxe - /dev/hdc is a Sony 8x4x32 cdrw

Boots Fedora C2T1 install CD no problem.
Boots Knoppix 3.3 no problem
Boots MandrakeMove no problem.

I created a floppy from cdrom.img (via cat cdrom.img > /dev/fd0) and was able to install that way - but I'm wondering if there is a known issue with 10.0 or if it is just me ...

If it matters - other attached storage hardware - dvdrom on /dev/hdd
IDE drives at /dev/hda and /dev/hdb

digital camera card on USB bus seen through scsi emulation driver as /dev/sda1

I found mine booted if I put CD2 in. It then asks for the install CD once booted, so chuck CD1 in then and all is good.
