Unhappy File Manager and Konqueror won't run

Hi, I just finished installed Debian, as I heard it was good for computers with low specifications.
(Dell Cpi 64mb RAM 6gb HDD)

It installed almost perfectly, I can log in with kdm, and I can run all applications and view the 'help' files, however, when I try to open Konqueror or File Manager, it shows it loading in the taskbar for a few seconds, then just disappears, and doesnt load.

I am new to Linux as every distro ive tried on every computer has run into endless problems and ive had to run back to windows.

Any ideas?

Thanks alot for any help you can give.

Given the amount of memory you have I think that kde is too heavy for it and would make it very sluggish to use. I would look at a something lighter like fluxbox or windowmaker. What you are encountering is a application crash and this maybe due to the lack of memory.
