MANDRAKE_10_1_ID is the token being matched in the file provided by Mandrake (/etc/mandrake-release). We don't have the option of making it an arbitary string, unfortunately. Since "Mandrake Linux 10" does not appear in /etc/mandrake-release, this causes the function to fail
Are you looking for any kind of mandrake, or the exact version ? Because for a 10.1, you have to look for "Mandrakelinux release 10.1", not just "Mandrakelinux".

BTW, if you want to be coherent, you have to look in /etc/mandrakelinux-release, the /etc/mandrake is just a compatibility symlink susceptible to be dropped in the future.
