Can you log in at all? Not even in a different terminal window? Is this error during the load-up (when all the writing goes down the page).

If you can log into Mandrake as root then change the file permissions for that file, like so:

Code:
chmod og-rwx /etc/sysconfig/autologin

Did you install GRUB as the bootloader (also alows you to load Windows). If so then boot into a kernel which will just bring up a console login. Type root then the password, and then enter the code I wrote before.

Why not try installing Mandrake one more time but not use the autologin feature.

Have you tried booting in single user mode? That won't ask for a password and then from there you can check out your settings.
