Ok, heres the story first I:

1. downloaded mandriva linux free 2007, from softpedia.com
2. i tried to install it and it says

Error opening RPM database: cannot open
packages database in /mnt/var/lib/rpm

3. i downloaded another mandriva linux free 2007, same thing happened (softpedia)
4. so i downloaded the same thing but through torrents on the actual mandriva website…..Same thing happened ^^
5. Help?

the CD/DVD is not faulty/scratched/burned wrong
i did check the md5 and it came up clear
it is the right version (ie. 32bit, i856, etc)
