    2. sndconfig refuses to configure my Sound Blater Vibra16 audio card

    How did you format that partition for i have found using the
    linux quick format is not very good every time i have done it
    i get problems so i use partition magic and do a secure delete
    i never get problems that way. If you have done this ignor
    or it could just be a bad install

    Just out of interest, if you're using Mandrake why post to a RedHat
    newsgroup? Anyways. How are you "logging out of X" and what do you
    mean by "freeze"? Can you access any text terminals? Can you SSH in?

    Never used sndconfig myself, but the new 2.6 kernel runs ALSA so try
    "alsaconfig" and "alsamixer"

    > 3. I can't set the time properly


    Again, what do you mean by "properly"? Are you always a few hours out?
    How are you setting the time? "date" and "hwclock" should work just
    fine. If you're running KDE you should be able to right-click over
    your clock and select "adjust date and time".

    I fixed with by going back to Mandrake Linux 9.2
