I have some ideas, but the resource given doesn't let me select only my 
2 colours, and trying 3 (ignoring the middle colour) didn't work very 
well with my mouse and level of manual dexterity.
(The "clickable link" didn't work for me either, but maybe I tried the 
wrong link.)

I think that these 2 base colours would be very good together :
#0066aa (a blue similar to that of Mandriva) and
#00cc00 (a light green).

The effect of these 2 colours together would be very different from 
those of Mandriva.  The green is a refreshing colour that would be good 
as the main colour, as an accent, or shared on par with the blue.
If one of the colours is to be an accent, I would rather it were the blue.
If only one of the colours is selected, I would prefer the light green.

As well, I hope you stay away from selecting (ugly) red/brown colours.

my 2 cents :)
