I'm sure there is some option in Mandrakes configcenter that allows you not to start X automatically at bootup.
I myself use Slackware but Mandrake should also have a file called /etc/inittab
In this file there is a line that goes something like:

# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
id:4:initdefault:

Change this to

# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
id:3:initdefault:

instead and when you reboot you will be left at the login prompt in the console. Now just login and upgrade your driver. When you're done change the line back to its original state and reboot. Voila!
