I don't have Mandrake so this is just a guess, but you may need to download/install the kdeartwork-3.1.3 package. Its probably best to use the Mandrake version, rather than the one from KDE as it will be tweaked for your system.

Hope this is of use.

Mine are missing as well.....except one...the clock.

This is on a Gentoo system with 3.1.2
Weird thing is, if I login to KDE as root, they all show up.

I had this problem with Mandrake 9.2 and 10 (now I use Debian Sarge, which is fine). If you build kdeartwork-screensaver from source then apparently it fixes it (XScreenSaver detection seems to be broken in Mandrake's packages). I just disabled the KDE screensaver and used xscreensaver instead (although this meant I couldn't use the extremely pretty Euphoria -_-)
Anyway, try building the screensaver package from source.
