They recompile everything, optimized for Pentium (and better) x86 chips.
Things are packaged differently, and they (used to) default to using KDE
instead of Gnome.  In fact, Mandrake used to be pitched as "Redhat with
KDE".  There are some other differences regarding the installer, but
all-in-all, they are quite similar.

I've sucessufully run circlemud code on Mandrake systems, without problems
(aside from my own bugs).
