I'm hoping that since Mandrake is sort of based on the Red Hat architecture, this might help:

If you're booting up to a graphically-messad-up desktop, ALTT+SHIFT+F6 may bring you to a text-mode virtual terminal that you can log into.

Alternatively, at the GRUB (or LILO) boot prompt, you can boot into single-user module via the "linux single" command.

Once you have a command prompt, try the XF86Config utility. It's a curses-based GUI app, so you can run it without X and use it to setup an X config file for your graphics card.
