[kde-linux] Blank screen during bootup kde 3.5.10

I'm using Kubuntu 8.04, kde 3.5.10, 2.6gHz computer and a wide screen 19"
I have two questions which may be related.
1. When I boot up, the entire screen goes black for as much as 60 seconds
before a large dot appears and morphs into an arrow-cursor. Not knowing what
is going on for that 60 seconds (or even IF anything is going on) makes me
nervous. If this is the default behavior, is there a way to change it -- put
some kind of graphic on the screen?
2. When I hit cntrl-F2 (or cntrl-F[2:6]), I get a login screen in huge type
with 40 chars per line and about 20 lines high. After name and password, it
scrolls off the screen below and I never see a prompt, so this is worthless
for a rescue method. How can I change this?
