How do you install mandrake 10.0 from DOS.

You don't install Mandrake from DOS. Mandrake is it's own operating system independent from dos or windows.
Any reason why you don't want to install from a CD? This is the preferred way to install Mandrake.
More importantly, what laptop do you have. Give some specs. on your system; memory installed, hard drive size and processor speed.
Speaking of "dos" tends to make me believe that your system may not support Mandrake?

However, is this system a Latitude XPiCD? If so, how much ram is in the system? This may be an issue, as Mandrake 10 recommends the following hardware;
Processor: an x586-class or above processor is required. This includes Intel Pentium I/II/III/IV, AMD K6/II/III, AMD Duron, AMD Athlon/XP/MP. SMP multi-processor machines are supported. (*)
Memory: at least 64 MB is required (32 MB for text-install); 128 MB or more is recommended.
Hard disks: IDE and SCSI hard disks are supported.
Hard disk size: At least 500MB is required, 1GB is recommended.
