loadlin doesn't have a menu, it's a commend dos program. I presume you mean lilo. in which case you need to edit /etc/lilo.conf and then run 'lilo' from a console.

The blue 'Welcome to Mandrake' menu is Lilo. You may have edited your lilo.conf file, but did you run lilo? With grub you only have to edit the file to effect the changes, but with Lilo you need to actually run it.

Once you've edited your /etc/lilo.conf file you need to type lilo. If the syntax of your lilo.conf file is good then you'll see:

Linux
Windows*
Floppy

or something.
