There could be problems in 8.0. Have you looked at the errata on the MDK site? Is there any reason you have not gone to 9.1? A lot better handling of drive mounting.

well i already bought 3 distros. mandrake 8.0, rh 7.2 and the latest slack 9.0. rh i didnt care much for + i had smp issues exactly like i have w/ mdk 8.0. slack 9.0 i orig d/l and i locked up evertime duing the install process allthough i did install it and get it working but not to my likings from the install. i then went and bought the 4 cd along w/ a book and it kept locking up in the same area. i tried everything. so i went back to the 1 i was most comfy w/ mdk 8.0. and want to learn a thing or 2 about getting the system to work w/ my machine. so taking the hard way out i chose it. i tried looking on their the mdk sites but lost my product key. if anyone has 1 that i can grab thatd be wonderful. also i'm afraid to buy another distro i dont like or wont work w/ my system.

MDK /mnt/cdrom & /mnt/scd0 locks up machine

Hi,
While "locks up machine" , is a pretty good description, I think it may take a bit more than that to find out what is going on.
If you are using KDE or Gnome, open up an xterm and type <dmesg>. Look for any error messages concerning your CD-Writer and CD-Rom and make sure they are being identified correctly. For instance, the CD-Writer may be hdc and the CD-Rom may be hdd or somesuch.
Then <cd /var/log> and use the less command to look at the different logs for error messages (especially syslog and maybe syslog.0). You may need to su to root to do this.
You will need to be root to use the following command in an xterm windiw <cdrecord -scanbus>
Please post any error messages you find in /var/log/syslog or the other logs. Also post what is output after you type <cdrecord -scanbus> as root. Finally, post the contents of /etc/fstab since you are hinting that just mounting them locks everything up.
If I have misunderstood what you are trying to do , please correct me.

This is where I shine. Completely lost.
You might open an xterm window and type < less /etc/fstab > and post the output of this. Only type what is inside the < > things.
Also in an Xterm window, first type < su > , give it root's password when prompted, and then type < cdrecord -scanbus > and post the output of that. There is a space between cdrecord and -scanbus.
Less is a command that lets you view a file, allowing you to go back to the beginning of the file if it is a long one (unlike cat).

Well, that and the fact that I heard the very early 2.4 kernels had quite a bit of problems. I'd think that 2.4.3 would qualify. Personally, I only started on Mandrake at 8.1 and promptly upgraded to 8.2. I might have even been running a 2.2 kernel on 8.1, can't remember.
