I've installed Mandrake 10.1 official under WinXP(2 partitions, both NTFS), after that, booting into winxp without any problem. However, it takes about 5min to boot into linux no matter gui or text login. Does anyone have any idea about this problem?

BTW, the source of the MDK(dvd iso) is located on the HD and I am not installing the MDK via HD.
So you're running a live version from the hard drive ? It can sometimes be tricky to determine what's holding up the initial bootup sequence of live distributions. My advise would be to try and use the interactive start-up (there should be an option for this at boot time) -- it may give more clues as to what it's waiting for.
