Freezes for how long?
What graphics card do you have, what driver?
I have had a few problems like this, they were all connected with the video-card & drivers.

Hmm, it might be some piece of software that comes with mandrake, and be hard to track down. try fedora core 2, or SuSE - just pick a different distro, as it will have a slightly different mindset, and might work with your hardware. I had a Pentium II that didn't work with any of the bigname distros except slackware, or old versions, like redhat 7.3
