I seriously doubt that Linux itself is crashing, it is more likely your X-server crashing.

A typical culprit is the hotlug service for USB... Try changing your BIOS to only accept legacy USB... not USB 2.0... or disabling hotplug.

For internet use kppp... I think you'll have more success.

Just hit
[Ctrl][Alt][F3]
To switch to a console,... and login as root.

You can also do a switch user to root in KDE from the menu,...
or run kdesu [programname] from the run option,...

I'm not sure about adsl connections. I DO know that USB modems (and the like) are a problem.

Mandrake.

Functionally, it's a lot like SuSE, but Mandrake tends to be a little more bleeding edge with its packages, and hardware support, but also geared towards being very familiar to ex-windoze users.
