could not uncompress second stage Ramdisk, this is probably hardware error while reading he data. this is maybe caused by a hardware failure or linux debug
have carried out the following

Sill, could the meida itself be bad? Just a thought.

i doubt it very much, the cd rom was purchased 2 days ago and the mandrake cd purchased from amazon a week ago.
it has to be someting in the Bios need to disable, but what it is , thats the question.
regardless of the above, thanks for your response once again
