Red face Mandriva One 2007 Gnome installation

I have downloaded Mandriva One 2007 Gnome, with Bittorrent and would like to use it as a Live CD. After burning the CD and trying to boot my PC with it, Mandriva starts with an orange image, a lot of verbose and finishes by: "version 2007.0 for i586....local host login:" . Then nothing happens and my screen becomes black. My PC is Duron based 1800MhZ, with 256MB of RAM which is supposed to be sufficient. Where is the problem ? Thanks in Advance for hints.

If the local host login screen is a GUI screen, the default Mandriva One user is guest. You should leave the password blank. See if that works.
