Cannot install Mandrake

ok, I've just got hold of a copy of Mandrake Linux, but I can't get it to install at all. I have no idea why it's telling me that there's an error in installing the packages. It won't even install the very first file as shown in the attached screenie. :(

Imma noob with Linux. First time I'm installing Linux OS in 7yrs.
I've downloaded the files from the Linuxiso website so not sure what to do now.

Ok, the checksum for cd1 is different. However, I'm having difficulty trying to download the file from the website. Do they have a ftp site I can download from?

I've just got home from work and the damn thing stopped downloading at 71%. :( Been downloading from the Mandrake ftp and now it seems that I can't get any connection to download that file.

I'm fed up now. Downloaded CD1 twice, and both times it comes out with a different checksum to that stated in the linuxiso site.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
