Trouble installing Mandrake 8 from ISO

I downloaded the two iso files from the mirror sites and burned them to
CD's using CD Creator.  I selected ISO 9660.  Should the install boot from
the CD during start up?  I'm running Win 98 and I have CD first in the
list of boot devices in the BIOS setup.  Your help is appreciated.

Trouble installing Mandrake 8 from ISO

The problem you're having is that all of the ISOs and mirrors listed on the
mandrake website are missing the Boot directory. This makes it impossible to
install mandrake 8.0 even if you make a boot disk.

Has anyone found a solution to this yet? I've e-mailed the mandrake people
and have received no reply yet.


1. Trouble installing Mandrake: hangs on ISO 9660 Extension: RRIP_1991A

I'm trying to install Mandrake 7.0 on a computer that doesn't have a floppy
drive.  The computer boots from the linux CD ok, when it gets to the
"second stage installation" it throws up an error:

        _X11TransUnixSocketConnect: Can't Create: errorno = 111

        (or something to that effect, it scrolls too fast)

then it continues on and then suddenly hangs at the line:

        <7> ISO 9660 Extension: RRIP_19911A

I never ever get to the initial installation screen...  

Is the X11 error significant, or the fact that I don't have a floppy drive?

Any suggestions?
