Unable to login to Mandrake

I have just installed Mandrake 10.1 on a hard drive with Windows server 2003. After reboot, Mandrake begins but I am unable to do aynthing after logging on. (ie the operating system GUI does not load). I have tried "startx" but the message "execve failed for /etc/xll/x (errno 2)"
Must Mandrake be reinstalled on a seperate hard disk or is it possible to get this working? I have no experience with Linux.

The fact that you're dual booting has nothing to do with this. The problem may be related to the video card that you're using and the compatibility with mandrake video drivers.

Thanks Trigger-Happy,

I reinstalled Mandrake a couple more times and finally realised that it was not detecting the correct video card.

It is working now.
