Yes that's no problem. Just make sure that in that lilo.conf section you enter the right root partition.
Keep in mind though that if the other Mandrake is a different version, it's configured for a different kernel version so loading modules won't work. But if the Mandrake's are configured for the same kernel (say you installed the same Mandrake version from the same cdrom) then this'll be a good way to do it. It'll save you some disk space.
Personally I hardly ever use modules so I don't really concern myself with this and therefore I use one kernel to boot pretty much every Linux system I have (LFS and non-LFS)
