It's likely you're using kdm (default on Mandrake I think), unless you've
changed it yourself. Mandrake stores it's configuration for kdm in
/usr/share/config/kdmrc. This is probably the file you need to look at. It's
not well commented at all, but have a look for the NoUsers= line. Should look
Including all the users you don't want to show up in the kdm menu. Might be
another issue though if you've lost the shutdown, reboot buttons. Have a look
at that file anyway and see if anything looks relevant.
If you're using xdm or gdm, Mandrake stores the config info in /etc/X11/xdm,
and /etc/X11/gdm. The config files are in these directories.
