Can't get past login screen


I'm not quite sure what exactly is going on... I'm running Mandriva 2007 on my laptop and everytime I log in, it starts to start up the GUI, but then it goes back to the login screen with no errors or anything. It works just fine if i boot up in failsafe and type startx. I'm wondering if this is a problem with the ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 driver that I downloaded or what. Any help would be appreciated.

So I tried to create and login from a new user name. I then got this message. "Could not start kstartupconfig. Check your installation." Any ideas on what to do next? Thanks.

Ok so I figured out that the PATH variable was set incorrectly in my .bash_profile... I suppose you should know what you're doing when you alter it =D
