    Boot Prefs

    I'm a newbie so I can only tell what I found to stop Mandrake 10 taking almost all of my life while it tried to load etho. I turned that off completely by going to the Mandrake Control Centre and unchecking 'network'' on boot. You can get to the Mandarke CC by going through System| Configuration|Configure your computer| (you mght have to then enter your root password if you have not logged in as root).

    In the MCC (I know cricket loving members might object to the abbreviation) chose 'System' and 'Services'. You will then see the list of items you can then disable.

    I'm sure that experienced users will be able to offer better advice than the above.
