Unhappy KDE freezes on "initializing peripherals". I hve mandrake 10, but also froze on 9.2.


Please help.
I am quite a newbie, and am TRYING to move from winXP to Mandrake.
The only thing stopping me from eliminating winXP is KDE!

-I WANT KDE though!- It looks sooo good.

The install setup is great and worked a breeze.
All packages, except the HTML editor installed perfectly.
(IT SED ERROR READING)~ Minor thing though.

The details:
When i boot into KDE, it goes all the way up to the "GLOBE ICON" (46%)
...AND FREEZES!
Is there any config error, or hardware problem i am facing?

My PC spec is: (Self-built)

AMD ATHLON 2000+
120GB HDD MAXTOR 7200RPM
AN7-SOMETHING ASUS MOTHERBOARD
Nforce2 Intergrated
INTERGRATED GFX AND 5.1 SND
SONY 52x32x52 high speed CDR-W drive
16x DVD rom DRIVE
WIRELESS USB MOUSE- PACKARD BELL
WIRELESS KEYBOARD- "PC-LINE"
5.1 SPEAKERS
sagemFAST800-840 usb ADSL w/TISCALI
Monitor etc...

Please can someone reply as, i'm merely 14...
[ VERY MUCH TRYING TO SPEED UP THE PROCESS~LOL~]

Any help whatsoever is greatly appreciated!
Thanks Guys,

Ronnel.
