The features you are looking for are provided to R by the
readline library. Most likely, your version of R was not
built with readline support.
On some Linux distributions with package management systems
(I'm not sure about Mandrake), you sometimes need to install
a package named readline-devel or something like that (the
development version of the library) before compiling R.
