Restart after Updates?

Okay I have a stupid question. I am running Mandrake 10, and I am just curious if after you download and install updates do you have to restart the machine, or are the services restarted automatically.

Don't know Mandrake, but all services should be restarted after an update - they certainly are on my debian box. Welcome to the wonderful world of linux were you don't have to reboot every time you install new software...
