    Did you check the md5 sum of your iso before you burned it? Also did you have the MDK installer check the integrity of the disks?

    During the install that is a option in Fedora. I do not know that that is in the mandrake install. Press 'i think' alt+F3 during the install. That way you can see where it hangs. md5 is a tool to check that the disk you d/l are ok. Some d/l's are bad and will not install. I have had a few so its always a good idea to check. look here http://userpages.umbc.edu/~mabzug1/cs/md5/md5.html

    hi, i had this issue with 10.1 on a athlon 600 and found that if i used 9.2 instead it worked fine, you can then update.
