    well mine is the same model cd-rw. I had no problems installing Mandrake.
    what is your system configuration? The processor, Mobo, etc?

    you mean the mandrake cd is not bootable? Or is it after installing that you
    are not able to access the drive? which one? please be more clear.

    Well actually, it is a boot cd..
    While it is installing, it is asking me how to install. the only option is a CDrom install and it sayz that there are no CDrom drivers available, so setup cannot continue.....
