Mandrake 9.1 GUI start up trouble

Please be patient with this ole noob. I have much to learn.
Finally after more than a week, I have MDK 9.1 running, in IceWM. But I can not get it to load up the following; Gnome, KDE, or MDKKDE. If I type startx MDKKDE it starts up ICEWM. Commands for KDE or Gnome give a red screen then goes back to terminal.
I Have a USR Hardware Modem (Sportster 0460) manually set to IRQ3 - Com. 3 (tty2) it is not detected.
Also the ALSA Driver not running

Any Help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,Digger
