Hum... just thought that you might not and that is why it is not where we have surgested, as we did just assume you were using KDE.

The only thing I can think of is something didn't install. Did you do a fresh install or an upgrade?

kcontrol is the KDE control center. If you want to start the mandriva Control Center type mcc as root at the command line or you can use the command DrakConf too.
The Mandriva menu system looks busted in a lot of cases. If something is not there but you know it's installed you can type the command to the command line and start it that way.

Also, if that is the case, then you could just create your own menu items linked to the corresponding command.
