looks like pwc is a module for a web cam so pull out the web cam when u boot. If u are really despret u can just delete the module from inside /lib/modules/*/*/??? type
find /lib/modules -name "pwc*" to find it

if it still locks without the web cam boot linux with emergency

umm try installing nVidia's graphics drivers.
first u have to stop linux from loading X.
U can do this 2 ways.
first u can reinstall mandrake and say no when it says do u want X to load
on startup

2nd u can boot linux in single user mode and type chkconfig --del dm

U will be at a txt console.

reload windows and download nvidia graphics drivers.
reload linux and cp drivers to ~home and install u will have to read the README.
then try and start X with
startx
if it works try chkconfig --add dm to start X every time

umm do u have a fat32 partition if so save to that.
mandrake usually mounts fat drives to /mnt/windows

or cdr it and copy from /mnt/cdrom

ok will I am using a windows laptop at the moment so i can only help with so much.
ok once u have it on cd put in drive.
log in with root
cd /mnt/cdrom
cp NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run /root
chmod 777 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run

if u get an error look what file it is missing, find it on the mandrake cd's and install with rpm -Uvh file.rpm

If it installs ok open up XFree86-4 with vi so type
vi /etc/X11/XFree86-4
go down untill u find "driver nv"
press i
replace nv with nvidia
press esc
type :wq
then type startx
