Then simply install Mandrake 7.2 and then update the kernel and module-init-tools. You will also have to apply a whole bunch of security fixes (don't ignore them or you're toast).

If you really want a customized setup you should look into Gentoo or some of the lighter distributions. It is always easier to start out with a small install and choose what you want added than removing and downgrading from a big and new distribution release.
