Easy to install, very user friendly, stable....
In my current project we use Mandrake from Desktops to Heavy Servers....no complaints whatsoever!
i would not go MDK10 if i were you though.
it is easy to install, not as easy as RH9 or fedora C1 but easy none the less, but the updater that configures the errata and updated rpm's trashed my system so hard that i had to format reinstall.
it blew away my apache server, currpted my gnome gui, broak all of my launchers, etc.
i will never go back to MDK for any reason.
stay with RH9 for now. yes the support dries up on the 30th, but it is stable, runs great, has plenty of RPMs out there for it and will remain so for at least an other year. by then FDC2 will be out of test and the bugs will be worked out of it. then you can think of upgrading to FDc2 or better.
or move to a hardcore *nix like slackware or debian.
