Splash Screen After Logon Freezing


Hi all,

I installed Fedora Core 5 on my Toshiba Equium A60 (No problems on install)
Setup a normail user and tried logging in. Now here is the problem:

Typing in my username - FINE
Typing in my password - FINE

Press Return

Screen switches to the loading screen with the icons saying loading "Window Manager" ect.

The system just hangs - no Mouse or Keyboard Response.

it hangs mainly on Loading window manager and Loading Nautilus

Root Also does the same.

I can load into Terminal fine.

Kernel Version is 2.6.15-1

I know the install disk image is fine as i loaded it on to VMWARE without failure.

Please help. 2 installs and still no joy.
