And you were booting from lenny, right?

And GRUB2 comes to place.

Wow... that's a very old Mandrake release (kernel 2.4.22), and from the 
above line, it seems that you are not using "chainloading" but directly 
booting your old Mandrake from GRUB2. If yes, then it can be that you 
(well, not "you" but the os-prober) missed something at the boot entry, 
I would try to manually boot Mandrake from GRUB2 command line, test some 
combos and when you finally get it, edit the corresponding menu file 
from ("/etc/grub.d/*") accordingly.
