    I'm trying to install Mandrake on my laptop, but when I start it it says
    that it can't find my CD drive, something like

    hdc:status error:status=0x56 {DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest}
    hdc:status error:error=0x00
    hdc:drive not ready for command

    My recommendation is to avoid Mandrake.
    I tried to install Man 9.2 on my new gateway/firewall and it never did work
    right.
    Among other things, it set the default route to go to my internal network
    instead of the internet.
    Shorewall never did allow Samba to work properly, even when I allowed my
    internal connection to be trusted.
    Mandrake wanted to set up my internal network using DHCP, even though I use
    static IP addresses, and it kept doing this even when I told it not to.
    Basically, the install was so "simple" that it didn't give me tools to set
    things up the way I wanted when that was different from the Mandrake
    defaults.
    After fighting with it for 3 days I went back to Redhat 7.3 (old, but I had
    the disks handy) and 30 minutes after the basic install everything was
    working properly. It would take an awful lot to make me try Mandrake again.

    Check the boot options. I think Mandrake comes with different Kernels.
    Try one of the others.
