    Linux Booting Problem

    I just installed Mandrake 9.1, and now I have some booting problems.

    After installing Linux, I configured the net. surfed, and then wanted to make sure Windows was ok, so I exited linux, and went into Windows.

    When I tried to get back into Linux, I put my password and userid, and then when its loading KDE or Gnome, it just sits there with the watch, and you can hear the computer working.

    It just wont log in anymore.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Try to go into the sytem from the command line (init=3). If the is messed up then you know that you system is fuxord. If you can login from the cli then you should check out your x windows setup and you kde/gnome setup.

    I dont think my X Windows is messed, since I can actually login into either KDE or Gnome, its just when its loading either it seems to freeeze.
