I have Mandrake 9.2 on a Compaq 2500 (Beefy: 1GB RAM, 5/4.3GB drives) and finally got X to start with the standard onboard video card. But it is taking forever to load. The drives have been working for the last hour or so. I got the KDE 3.1 splash screen and several minutes later I get a red screen with a mouse cursor. The drives still going and going but its going on an hour and a half and its still not done.

I SSH'd to the system and its down to a crawl...less than a crawl actually due to processor utilization I assume.

Any ideas on what to do?

Does your hostname match your /etc/hosts file?
