That mobo is one of the kind with "integrated everything" (including video). Those are a bit bound for errors. But you could try to press "F1" on the MDK10-boot screen and start the Mandrake installer by typing "linux noapic". That should circumnavigate possible issues with some problematic devices on such cheapo-boards.


Keep us informed if that worked.
