Check the path again - the last Colors is a tab - are you sure you don't have 
that?  I don't have access to Mandriva just now, but I'm sure that their 
systemsettings will not be different from other distros'.  On any *except* 
Common Colors in the drop-down list, you should have Normal Background and 
Alternate Background - probably at the top of the list.

If you open systemsettings less than full-screen, it may not be obvious that 
Common Colors is actually in a drop-down list.
