Mandrake 10 installation cant load program into ramdisk
I have a couple problems with the mandrake installation.
First i have to boot with the second disk for some reason.
Next the it says that it cant load the program into ramdisk.
Has this happened to anyone else?

Have you checked the md5sums of the .iso image files you downloaded?
Sounds like the files may have been corrupted
The first disk should be bootable. The second disk is also bootable, but if you can not boot from the first disk, I reccommend you start by checking the integrety of the files you used to create the CD's.

Yeah i guess it must be the file because I burned a cd at 1x and it still didnt work

I did something silly which produced the results that you describe - I wrote the isos to 74 minute disks rather than 80min. cdrecord gives you a very small error message (which I of course missed) and mandrake install loads up but gives you the ramdisk error and then dies

I've fixed it (phew!) by using 80min disks and Mandrake 10.0 is happily installing itself on my laptop as I type.
