What you can do is to check the md5sums of the iso-images.

If they differ from the original md5sum shown on the Mandrake mirror, your images are broken and you have to download it a second time.

If the md5sums are equal, it might be possible that your cd is damaged. Try to burn a new one ...

Hope this helps by now ...

Make sure you burn discs with 48 speed. I burn't with 12 and had this problem on the release version.

Where this one runs on some machines it doesn't on others with low speed discs.

No problem with rc1 version, but this manifests itself only with the 10 version.
