I don't know if Mandrake handles .src.rpms differently from other rpm-based distros. The usual procedure is to cd to the directory containing the .spec file which was installed when you installed the .src.rpm (probably in /usr/src/<kernel version>/SPECS. Then run the rpm --rebuild command with <filename>.spec instead of <filename>.src.rpm.
I could be mistaken, but that's how I've done it with three different rpm-based distros.
