Mandrake ISO's (and booting) - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I'm using the mandrake iso's (mandrake91-cd1-inst.i586.iso) and cant get the system to boot from them. i checked the bios to boot from cd, and it boots from the win xp cd. it also runs an autostart program when you insert it in xp. the program lets you create a boot floppy to use, and it works fine, but when it asks me for the mandrake install cd, it doesn't recogninse the disk. any ideas?...

    Default Mandrake ISO's (and booting)

    I'm using the mandrake iso's (mandrake91-cd1-inst.i586.iso) and cant
    get the system to boot from them. i checked the bios to boot from cd,
    and it boots from the win xp cd. it also runs an autostart program
    when you insert it in xp. the program lets you create a boot floppy to
    use, and it works fine, but when it asks me for the mandrake install
    cd, it doesn't recogninse the disk.

    any ideas?

    How did you burn the image to CD?

    When you open the CD in Windows, does it show the downloaded iso file or
    the real contents of the CD? If it shows only the ISO file, please
    consult the README to see how to write the CD the correct way:

    best regards
