Personally I don't see a reason to go from Red Hat 6.2 to Mandrake 7.1 as they are fairly similar (although from what I hear Mandrake will pick up some of the newer hardware better). Are you having a problem with Red Hat? If you are just looking to try out a new distro I would recommend either Debian or Slackware.

For my less succinct opinion check out http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hp?threadid=22.
