MDK 9.2 - Long black screen when starting or rebooting system

I had this problem with MDK 8.2, MDK 9.1 & now MDK 9.2. Most times when im booting into linux, i get a very long black screen when trying to access the logon screen to pick users, quite a environment, try to reboot or shut down system.
I'm running on a P4 1.7GHz, 256MB SD ram, tnt2 video card, avance AC97 sound card, 10GBs, 1GB swap file.
