it is a bluish screen that offers 6 options - including install mandriva, help,
I can actually get to the help option at mandriva.com, but not much help is actually offered.
I found this screen through autorun.exe in a folder called dosutils
a little bit more info - when I click on autorun.exe it takes a few minutes to look through the cd and extract files before the autorun screen opens.
It is open on my computer now, it has the following options:
install mandriva linux
install mandriva linux using floppy
join the ml community
discover our online store
keep your computer up to date
when i click on install there is no response whatsoever

Mandriva was not booting from the cd, no matter what I did. So I tried ubuntu, and it is working. That is what I am running now, from cd.
Not sure what was up with Mandriva, and it could very well have been my fault since I am so new at this! One thing though, the Ubuntu home page is much more user friendly than the Mandriva one! It totally walked me through the whole process...just what I needed!
