Whenever I start Gnome or KDE my hard drive makes a nagging creeping noise that doesn't stop. It sounds as if its swapping data even though i am not running anything. How can I stop this annoying bug?

Sounds likely that you need more RAM (at least 32 megabytes is required for GNOME and KDE, 64 is a lot more comfortable if you are running Netscape or using fancy themes or otherwise using more memory than the base install). Other than that all I can think of is that your hard drive has some sort of problem. GNOME/KDE aren't doing anything that would cause this.
