Click on Start icon nothing happens


Hi all,
Yesterday I remove windows xp definitely from my pc for Linux (I'm trying to use for now Mandriva 10.1.)
For me was an hard choice to do but I hope to find a lot of new friends here that will help me to go on!
I have two problems:
1) Using kde, when on the desktop I click on 'Home' icon nothing happens.
2) I can hear only systems sounds and no CD, MP3. If if use gnome it works. Why?

Thanks a lot!

A.C.
