How to burn mandrake 10.1 ISO and install.


Recommended Posts


So I am trying to install mandrake linux 10.1 on my new PC. This was a downloaded version. I have a copy of 8.2 but the drivers are too old :furious3: and it completly wont work.


Ok so my problem is when i burn the cd, all I get is a flashing underscore on the top left corner.


I need help burning it with nero. I am burning it as a boot cd with the boot image as cdrom.img. I use ISO cracker to turn the ISO into useful stuff.


I will hapilly redownload the file if needed, since the 3 ISO's were on their a week ago, and not on the offical mandrake site anymore. Also i don't know how to run md5checksum in winblows.


Feel free to write this in HTML, or I can rewrite this in HTML and put it on my (linux) server.




Love your spell check and smilies, spell check would help me at some forums :joker:


EDOT: Im smart enough i did try the search feature first btw.

doing md5sums is explained here for windows.


as far as burning the cd's, you shouldn't need the cdrom.img image. all you need is to burn the 3 ISO's to a CD via nero's "burn image" option (i don't remember where that's at exactly) and you should be able to boot with the first CD. don't break the ISO's down with a cracker, just use burn image and nero should take care of the rest.


here's a good explanation of what i'm talking about:

why don't you tell us what OS you are working with first..? Also, just bought a linux mag (at borders) that has Mandrake 10.1 bundled (about 15 bucks)


It says mandrake in the title :P


Well thanks though, but it's working now
