Unhappy Mandrake not working


Hello everybody!

Yesterday I tried to install Mandrake Linux 9.1, everything went alright, but when I tried to start it, it says "Building Mozilla Registry" and then nothing happens.

I tried again this morning, the same thing happened.

I already tried RedHat and Debian, and this never happened to me!

Please help me

Unhappy

Hello
A few days ago I deleted all my linux partitions, and created them with DiskDrake.
Apparently, the system never stops at the same moment.

Can someone help me?
My computer = Dell Dimension 4550...
