Thank you for the info, I've already posted there and I get only one 
non-satisfactory reply like "wait for the 2.6.25 version...")

I've tried again to boot with the new kernel and now i can give some info 

After starting the boot, I got the Kubuntu splash screen with the progress bar 
advancing (black to blue...), and in the bottom appeared the following:

- With linux 2.6.24-16-generic:

"routine check of drives: dev/sda1...	14% (stage 1/5, 257/1205)"

at this point the system is freezed, and I have to unplug the comp... :-/

- With linux 2.6.20-16-generic:

"the system starts regularly, and the check of the disk is performed 
correctly" (I suppose so...)

Is there something that I could do with the Konsole to verify the problem? I'm 
not very skilled with command line, but somebody could give me a help...
