I don't know if there is a specific manual in existence for Mandriva 2005, but for the things that you have mentioned (which will be common to all distros), you can download a tutorial which is extremely thorough here:

There are books available for Mandriva 2005 and 2006 which you can get from the Mandriva store. For most things, you are better off getting a generic Linux book like the one mentioned above and reading man pages.

you also have the newbie admin guide (search LQ bookmark)

and also you can download these pdfs
Some should be in the doc menu of your mandriva install

I like this one: quick start

Paper copies are another issue. A generic linux book would do.
