I'm not sure about mandrake, but you must be used to mIRC for Windows. Linux IRC clients don't behave like windows. When an identd request comes to a linux box, it can only get answered by something listening on the IdentD port(113). Mandrake *should* come with a daemon that automatically gives a responce, but of course *should* doesn't mean *does*. Bear in mind as well that you MUST be using a username on IRC that is the SAME as one on your system(root won't work on 99.9% of IRC servers). For instance, I have a username:

xyzuser

on my Linux box, I must be logged in as xyzuser, and running IRC as xyzuser in order for the system identd to reply with a valid responce.

Hope this helps, if you think your system does not have a daemon running, I'd look into oidentd(it's on freshmeat.net). This is the best I've used and it even masquerades linux->Windows requests.
