Help! Mandrake not starting up!

My Mandrake Linux 9.2 will not startup. It shows the little white bar to show how much it has loaded, but then it goes straight to what I think is text mode. It asks me for my login and password, but then it does nothing. It only tells me the last time I went on. The only thing I can do is press escape, but then it gives me an incredibly long list of directories. What can I do so I can startup?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
