mandrake cd will not boot and install

I grabbed the ISO imags off of cs uc riverside's website, and my first mandrake cd is not booting my dell latitude c600...I did install debian 3.0 last night on this laptop, and had lilo put on the perhaps this is preventing the laptop to boot off the cd-rom....which shouldn't happen because I set the bios to boot off the cd and nothing else, and still no bootage....

i will check out the contents of the cd and make sure my dumbass cd burning program cdburnerxppro(good program) didn't just copy the iso file, and actually burned the image.

is there a certain trick to boot off the mandrake cd 10.1, first one?

thanks for your help
