Be careful maybe you are mistaking here: the mysql root user as nothing to
see with the mandrake root user.
For exemple I lauch the mysql server as root from command line whereas I'm
just a user on my desktop.
So the mandrake root password and the mysql root password are also completly
maybe this can be helpful:
