Subject description: drive mounting program hangs, and shutdown hangs
 

I am trying to use Puppy 4.2 on a Samsung NC10, but there are a number of problems.
To start with, when the program boots the drive icons on the desktop land on top of each other in the bottom left hand corner (not a big problem, but a symptom).
Mounting and unmounting partitions and pen drives often hangs. When I click on the mount icon the orange sign comes up, but nothing else happens. I click on it, and it disappears, but thats it.
When I shut down I just get a blank grey screen, and I have to pull the plug.
Shutdown works usually if I shut down just after booting.
I suspect a part of the problem may be to do with having a first partion (sda1) which is protected in some way by the manufacturer - it is a recovery partition for windows.
I tried the retro version, but it wouldn't get past the searching for pup420.sfs, which it abandoned (I tried the same disk on another computer which got further, but hung at xorgwizard).
Anyone else had these problems??
