first of all i think u have to install The gdm package which is the gnome display manager . u can just type :

#urpmi gdm

at the command prompt to install it . or use rpm drake to install it
then u have to change the default display manager which is mkdm (mandrake customised) to gdm
then when u restart ur system it should be using the gnome display manager
