If you've installed Mandrake 9.2 from scratch, you should have been asked if you'd like a graphical login. Even if you've logged in from the command line, once you're inside your graphical environment you should be able to use the Mandrake Control Centre to have a graphical startup.

Mandrake sets that up automatically if your video card supports it. If Mandrake did not set that up then it's probably because it didn't think your video card would support it.

The part about booting into graphical login means you boot into level 5 instead of level 3, thats not related to Lilo splash screen.
