Gonna need some hardware specs...
Have you tried F1 after selecting linux to show the boot process...might show an error that's relevant
(btw, Mandriva LE 2005 (10.2) is the reason I dumped that OS, I was a faithful Mandrake user prior to that...it got way too flakey on my hardware after the name change for some reason)

This sounds vaguely familiar but by no means am I certain of this fix.
IIRC, I had to add "noapm" (no advanced power management) to the boot command to get one of my boxes to boot up.
"linux noapm" (without the quotes) would be what I'd try first...sorry, can't remember how to edit the boot command in Mandriva...pretty sure you can find that on your own. :tazz:
