Unhappy post upgrade from mandrake 9.x to 10.1 limited to shell access

recently upgraded from mandrake 9.x to 10.1 VIA ISO cd's. previously

"startx" fails with complaints that xf86config has invalid section name
of "InputDevice". Searches of internet for help yielded only one thing,
that everyone has an opinion...just not the same. Any help would be
