Maybe you need upgrade your Mandrake Linux. MDK-8.2 use
the old(1.0.7) teTeX system.
On my Mandrake 9.2 box, mf is link to mfw.

Or maybe you can get the source rpm from Mandrake-9.2(any mirror
site you find it) and rebuild it(I never try it).
get /somewhere/tetex-2.0.2-xxmdk.src.rpm (xx is revised number)
rpm -i tetex-2.0.2-xxmdk.src.rpm
rpmbuild -bb /usr/src/RPM/SPECS/tetex.spec
The binary rpm will at /usr/src/RPM/RPMS/i586/ directory.
