When installing Mandrake Linux 9.1, i have made it to "step 2".

when it selects the partition to be installed to, it starts to format it then tells me hdlist not found.

What does that mean, and how can i fix that?

P.S. I am using the HD boot disc, and loading the setup files off my HD, i have 2 HD's installed, 1 with XP (60gig) one with nothing partitioned to 3GB FAT32 and the other i have tried to leave blank and do it setup and also tried to do in computer management...

Is "hdlist not found" the exact error message you receive. Does it say anything else? Also are you using AMD or Intel? I have searched the Internet a little bit and this problem you are having seems to be hardware related. From what I have read many will not upgrade to the latest Mandrake Linux because they get the same problem you got. Also it says that P4 boxes seem to do the best with the latest Mandrake.
