Hello.
I wish to install Mandrake 10 from hard drive.
The 3 ISO files were extracted to the NTFS partition at D:Mandrake10
and I have prepared a boot diskette for HD installation using rawrite, but I cannot access the path...
I beleive it is not mounted, and I have no idea what is the path I should give the installation program.
Anyway I beleive that the partition settings is (hd0, 4) (First (and only) hard disk (it is SATA by the way, altough I don't think it matters), at first extended partition, drive D. )
How can I install Linux from hard drive?

Thanks.

I think that problem is with your NTFS parition..
Better you should have some fat32 partition and store the files there and try to install.

I thought so too, but I'm pretty sure it is not the problem.
Does anyone have experience with it?
I just have to know what is the UNIX form path I should give it ( /x/y/z.... and not d:abc)
