Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

are you using KDE? i used to use Mandrake and i think that's the default.
if so there should be a menu configuration program somewhere in the start menu.
sorry, i am in fluxbox right now and can't verify.
If not I have had this problem a number of times and have always found the (simple) solution on this site or google, can´t remember it off the top of my head as it hasn´t happened since I ditched the laptop.
Thats the right way to resolve the problem. This is a well known bug in some of the Mandrake 9.x releases. If you upgrade your system using urpmi, you should get updates that resolve the problem permanently.
