Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

After the startup progressbar is finished and before KDE starts the computer justs pauses for 1-2 minutes. It's just a blue screen with the mandrake logo in the lower corner. The computer is not connected to any network but has a network card, could it be waiting for a DHCP host or something similar?
if u use a themed startup (with mandrake logo...) press escape or f2 to see what's happening behind the screen.
also, check services to disable in "mandrake control center" (in system - services). it's probably a problem due to an attempt to connect to a network...
Yeah ,I have the same problem ,(It's even slower than win xp) and I just did an upgrade (from Mandrake 10.0). Pressing esc or f2 doesn't help. It shows nothing. I don't have any special services running .
Any suggestions ? Anybody?
