Good day, I have any problem. I can install Mandrake 9.0 into my notebook
(compaq nx9010), where W xp is running. If I insert the first install disk
into drive and restart my machine, I`ll see the Mandrake install dialog box.
So I press enter key to start the instalation. Then the instalation control my
hardware and then the process cut. Screen looks like:

hda:IC25N040ATMR04-0, ATA DISK drive
Partion check:
hda: and in this place cursor is blinking.

I don`t know where is problem. I have reserved a free place in hard disk to
install Linux and problem isn`t on the install cd side (on another PC the
install process ending successfully). Please help me. Thank you, Zdenek Skodik

Is there a reason you are tying 9.0? That is pretty out of date, there were a lot of bugs that got fixed in 9.0, with a newer computer you might want to try either 9.2 or 10.0. If you really want 9.0 just say so and we will try to work past this problem.
