Whenever I start into X when you see the cpu face and the spinning curson in the upper left hand corner I wait like 30 minutes and it goes no where I did also run Norton Disk Doctor on the volume before but then I did the undo thing what can i do to fix this?

Is X installed on your external USB drive? I seem to remember that X might have problems with that. Also, you will want to get more RAM before you can use X effectively. It's going to be slower than molasses on your machine. :(

By the way, this post should've gone in the Report Problems forum.
