Mandriva LE 2005 hangs on startup after upgrade


i upgraded my Mandrake 10.0 to Mandriva LE 2005.
Now when my machine boots, everything works fine until Gnome starts.
The blue screen and my mouse pointer appears like usual and i get the "working mouse pointer" (the sand glass thingy).
But nothing happens after it.

What can i try to do, or do i have to do a clean install of Mandriva?
But then i will lose all my settings, won't i?
