Finding Module Dependencies???...

I just installed Mandrake 9.2 (Im a first time linux user).. And all went well.

When i tried to boot mandrake it saw a few OKs in green and then it stopped and said

Finding Module Dependencies: modprobe: modeprobe: insmod pwc failed

Does anyone have any idea what that means?

please don't post the same thread in more than 1 forum.

that said, the pwc module seems to be used for webcams. if you have one unhook it and see if the sys will boot.
