Angry INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled 5 minutes


We are looking to move our email servers from Bellsouth to a linux box here at the office. The install I am "attempting" is Mandrake 8.1 with Kmail.

I am hoping this version of Kmail will work with Outlook express as our employees are all using win2k. Anyhow, here's my problem:

The install went fine and I selected a generic Intel 810 video driver for my video card that is built on the board. The motherboard is a D845GEBV2 with lan, audio and video all on the board.

When the install completed it rebooted to the above hated message! It will not stop at all!

I am a microsoft man and have no clue why I ever opened this can of worms, but I just can't figure out what's going on.

Can anyone share a thought and the commands I would need to get this install complete??

Many, many thanks in advance!!!!

If you decide to reinstall just accept what Mandrake finds,and do not test the settings. When you reboot you should be able to use either Mandrake Control Centre or run xf86config (for XFree 3) or xf86cfg (for XFree 4) change to the proper settings.
