I know this is going to sound weird, but you probably can steal the
keymap info from the mandrake setup, if you either backed it up or are
presently dual booting.  

This is certainly true of a console keymap;  if you haven't got it, use
showkeys to learn the keycode and then ungzip a nearly working keymap, 
tweak it, and gzip it back up again.  (The keymap selectors don't seem
to look for unpacked keymaps, last time I was looking, admittedly a long
while back.)

For X compare the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 files to see the keyboard string.
