GNOME error message help needed

I switched my Mandrake 10.0 from KDE to GNOME, and get the following popup every time I boot up:

There was an error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon.
Some things, such as themes, sounds, or background settings may not work correctly.
The SettingsDaemon restarted too many times.
The last error message was:
Failed to activate 'OAFIID:GNOME_SettingsDaemon'
GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in.

Any hints or other help on this would be appreciated.
