Please be more detailed..
Perhaps give us the error you get, we're not magicians over here.

If you're talking about the partition(s) the Mandrake installer made, then you can wipe them out by using fdisk/cfdisk , Im not sure about the Mandrake install process but during the install it gives you the option I belive to partition, choose to do it manually, and delete the partitions, even if you are not going to continue with the install. Just wipe the partitions out and make sure it writes it to the disk and reboot.

Its not a Mandrake Partition, its still a Linux Partition, no such thing as a Mandrake partition, Mandrake is just a distro. of Linux.
