This is done by kudzu. To avoid this remove the mark near <on boot> in kudzu in Mandrake Control Center -> System -> Services.

I think what apimente.br meant was harddrake...remember, if you do turn off harddrake from activating at boot, any new installed hardware will not be recognized/configured until you manually run harddrake. BTW, 3 mins. seems a bit long for the hardware probing process...is this an older computer?
