    Help with install

    Hey, I just built a new computer a couple days ago, and I decided to use linux! So I got everything put together, went to my friends house, downloaded and burnt Mandrake to a cd, brought it home, popped it in and it started up! I'm at the first 'hit f1 for options/hit enter to install or upgrade' screen, so I'm thinking all is good. I hit enter, the blue bar at the bottom starts filling up. It gets to about 90% completed and then it crashes, and sends me to a screen with a whole lot of errors, among them being:

    "Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 0006e000"

    and then, at the bottom of the page

    <0>Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!

    I also tried writing the cdrom.img to a floppy disk, and it comes up with the same errors. So either the image is corrupted or something else is wrong. Can anyone help?

    Edit: I tried the cd on another computer, and the setup ran just fine, so I'm thinking it may be a problem in the bios or something else. any help would be great!

    Just curious, what motherboard do you have? Also, anyway you could post the previous lines of the error output (before the kernel paging one)?
