There is not better or preferred Linux Distro, your only going to get opinions and most people will only recommend what they use.
Personally, I'd say, if Mandrake didn't work quite like you wanted or expected, try another, then another, til you feel the one you install seems to suit you and only you, as that will be the best answer you'll recieve with a question that you asked.
Cheers and welcome to LQ.
