Mandriva 2009.1 install won't display default wallpaper.

I did an install of Mandriva 2009.1 with KDE 4.2 and for some reason it won't show the Default Wallpaper
Yet another machine I have Mandriva on has this Default wallpaper listed and selected.
Is there a specific place I can find the wallpaper? I was going to copy it from the 2nd machine and found the /usr/share/wallpaper directory but did not see it listed. Is there another way I can get this default wallpaper?

Which wallpaper? The one from Mandriva Free 2009.1 or Mandriva One 2009.1?

It is from PowerPack. I may be wrong but i think it's the same one as Mandriva One 2009.1

Powerpack has it's own default background image, but it should still be located in the following directory:
