Hello experts
I'm trying to install mandrake linux 10
I created a partition, and swap partition for installation.
When I try to proceed to the next installation step I get the following error:

INTERNAL ERROR: no kernel available
MDK::Common::Various::internal_error() called from
/usr/bin/perl-install/pkgs.pm:188

Wish you can help me proceed

Is your install CD known to be good, i.e., it's been used before?

Are you installing on something other than an x86 architecture (itanium or AMD cpu)?

I suppose this could be a result of a a bad CD or drive, but I'd really expect a different error if that was the cause.

I have downloaded the three .iso files and burned them on three CDs.
I downloaded them from one of the mirror sites of www.mandrakelinux.com
My processor is intel P4 with intel motherboard.
I don't think that the CD has a problem

After the download and before burning to media did you do an md5sum check on the iso images?

Have you tried these CD's on any other system?

On any of the mirror sights there should be a file with the iso images that has the MD5 checksum value for each of the iso images. Once you've downloaded the iso's you run an md5sum on those files and compare the result to what's on the download site. If they don't match the downloaded file is corrupt.

The md5sum tool is a part of any Linux system, but on windows you'll need to download one, see http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/using_md5sums.html
