mandrake 9.1 boot problem

The most major problem that I've been having is that when loading up mandrake 9.1, that part where it says [OK] to all the different items, mandrake locks up at the part where it says "Loading compose keys:" This doesn't happen every time, but has happened twice, and I REALLY hate having to flip the switch on my comp, have had to do that way too many times with windows. Anyone know if there is any way to fix it so that part doesn't break? Thank you for your time.

you've had several posts now with intermitent problems... really wierd problems if you ask me too. My installation of mandrake went without a hitch and I don't have nearly the amount of problems you're having with yours. Perhaps a reinstallation is in order.. I'm also a newb so don't take my advice without knowing that.
