Not all LG drives are labelled as such - many shipped with Compaq or Dell systems. That was my own situation; I didn't think to check the drive in my older Dell and I killed it with Mdk9.2. At that point it wouldn't even boot far enough to get into BIOS. I threw out the drive and put in another drive I had lying around.
If you're running Mandrake, use harddrake & see if it detects your drive or not. If not, then manually open the drive and insert a knoppix disk and boot from there. Look at the lines in /etc/fstab in knoppix & copy them out of the ramdisk to the fstab of your mandrake partition. Then reboot and see.
