Mandrake 8 site-start.el

I finally got my new system repaired and here is the modified
/etc/emacs/site-start.el file which turns off some of the 'features'
in the standard Mandrake configuration. Just replace the existing file
in /etc/emacs with this one and everything should work. Of course,
safe practice dictates making a backup of the original before doing
the copy. I have added some comments and you can see the differences
(which are not much) by doing a diff of the original file and the one
I have attached.
