Mandrake 9.1 fresh install, KDE problems?

K, just installed Mandrake 9.1 fresh on its own box (no dual boot windows or anything..) chose KDE as my GUI..

When I log in with the user account I created (and gave various accesses to) it appears to load ok.. but thats the end of the goodness.

I moved something into trash, I try to open trash to get it back, the screen flickers a white bar across it and then nothing.

same thing happens if i try and go to (for example) google thru the run command, ill type w ww, it shows a small dialog box saying its starting, then flicker, and nothing.

In addition, if I go into Quick Browser menu from the start menu, both the sub-menus of QB have as their only contents "could not read directory" or something to that effect (its crashed really well on the other machine now so I can't get the exact wording till after a reboot)

Ok.. so.. now it works.

Why you ask?

F'ed if I know.. The install worked great the first time, no errors or anything..

But just for the hell of it I installed a second time. The only, only difference this time was I chose 'default' KDE theme rather than I think Redmond.. and i have icons, i can surf the web.. you name it.

now.. to get APT and start gettin softs..

ciao and good linux'in
