I have installed debian sarge on my laptop (Dell Latitude) successfully. I used the installer that installed a desktop configuration with KDE and GNOME. Everything works, including installing some packages from the internet.
I then installed debian on my PC. Everything works in GNOME.
However when I use KDE and as soon as I open Konqueror, the harddrive comes on and it sits there accessing whatever on the drive. The system seems to "hang" - no response from mouse or keyboard. I then have to reset.
I would appreciate some advice on this please.
