What do you mean you lost them? They don't load up? Did you reboot? What happens? Are you at the command line?

Firstly Twilli - ty for a response.
I dont get an option of KDE or any other desktop at boot ( Window manager or session manager , I think it is in Linux :-s) .
I just get a start button with Linux written in it , and I tried session managers - no options to use KDE or Gnome. I used to get an option to choose session on logon or logoff.
I am okay with source or rpm installs - but have not been able to locate the url appropriate for this.

I don't know Mandrake 9.1. But in RH9 I think it is possible to use the CD to upgrade your system
