do you have fc2 and mandrake both ? or removed mandrake ?

well give output of fdisk -l  which is for partition table and tell use which partitino is root partition for which OS

fdisk -l lists all the partitions.If you want to use fdisk for creating/deleting partitions etc then do a   fdisk /dev/hda   .You'll get a list of commands which you can use.
For solving your Mandrake problem plz give the output of fdisk -l like Ricky requested so that we may know which is the root part for Mandrake.
Thanks
