Angry Mandrake Linux 9.2 Download Collection no longer working - annoying me!

Hi there! I am new to linux, so forgive me if my question is amatuerish. I installed Mandrake Linux 9.2 Download Collection which I bought from Dick Smith Electronics. It worked fine the first time I installed, but then I upgraded a couple of components. I added another 4 gig hard drive and changed my 96 megs of ram for 256 megs. Then the problems started. Whenever I went to load Linux it came up with a blank screen after I selected Linux in the LILO menu. So then I formated the hard drive and tried reinstalling. Then after an hour of install, it came up with the same problem again! So I returned the computer to it's original config, and it still refused to work!!! Please help, because I am at my wits end trying to get my stupid computer working, and cannot not install Linux and just go back to Windows, because my computer does something funny with boot floppys, and because I would rather not use Windows again.

BTW: if I start in Linux nonfb it comes up with error messages like:
Uncompressing Linux:
Invalid compression format

Uncompressing linux:
Out of memory

or it just restarts

Hope someone can help ,or my screen may take a trip out my window
