    the invalid hdlist error means the media is corrupted, the hdlist.cz file is where Mandriva looks to see the location of programs and other stuff.

    I suggest you redownload the iso's and check the md5sum before burning.

    I wouldn't have a clue as I don't know what exactly is a "security Audit system base" and what are its requirements.
