mdk 8.2 installation error - ext2fs error

When I try 2 install mdk 8.2, it crashes with this message:

FATAL ERROR IN STAGE1: No such file or directory

and in kernel log:

EXT2-fs error (device ramdisk(1,3)): ext2_check_page: rec_len is smaller than minimal - offset=0, inode=0, rec_len=0, name_len=0

my configuration is: XP1400+, 192M SDR, TNT2Ultra, 10G+6G HDD, ABit KT7E...the same problem occurs on fathers computer, can pls someone help me? At first, I thought, this error occurs due to w2k, so I removed the disk with 'em from comp, but mdk still didn't continue installing...i read somewhere, that it uses ext3, while this ramdisk appears to be ext2? this is my very first linux installation and i want to have it installed, win is boring so can anyone help me?
