Question Mandrake 9.2 or RH 9? which is best for a proxy/cache/NAT box

i am liking mandrake 9.2 very much coz its the only distro to have installed on my laptop(compaq presaio 910US) while RH9 AND Suse 8.1 completely lost out. i got everything working. but thats not the issue. i know most pple run RH9 for their servers but i just feel the RH hype is too much and wud want to try others.

i want to setup a linux box that will serve a network like 10 systems. it will serve as a NAT proxy/cache,DNS,DHCP,bandwidth manager and filtering. what do u suggest i use?

RH9 has switched; compare mandrake 9.2 w fedora core 1. Nothing wrong with RH9, but updates will be comming for fedora w/o needing to buy support.

Personally, I am using mandrake for bind/dhcp/nat/firewall w/o problem.
