Tapedrive to logout crashes

Hello, before I start, I must say, I love linux. Okay, couple questions.

1> Running Mandrake 8.2, love it. What's this though, when I log out from
being a common user, my system freezes right before the grphical login (using kde 2.2.2)
, this isn't the case when I exit as root though? So, my work around has been
using ctrl alt backspace to logout from kde (is this bad to do?), no problems, flicker flicker and I'm at
the prompt for login. Gnome is absent of this too. When it does freeze (common user logout) I'm able to reboot
with alt sysrq b, can't sync nor unmount though. Another thing is the
login graphic isn't the same 768x1024? as my desktop is. Idears here?
How would I change the login size to match the desktop size? What file?

2> I use a hp colorado 5g epat/pt drive. I wish it would move a little faster.
It whirls for a few seconds then stops,starts,stops. It gets the job done, but it takes forever.
Sure it's not to good for it either. Command? tar -b 64 did some funk when I tried

3> Lastly, where would I look to speed up the ext3 a little? Safe.?

Thank you, -cg.
