IMO Mandrake 9.1 is a little better than Red Hat 9 - I have them dual booted on a Westren Digital 20gig - The Mandrake Control centre is excellent for a newbie and the KDE Control Centre is superior to Gnome's one - I also prefer KDE to Gnome. Nice to see everthying mounted nicely in Mandrake - good for newbies

All in all - if your a newbie - choose Mandrake 9.1 - however if your more experienced choose either - Red Hat's got its good points too (so has gnome - I just prefer KDE)
