Can I install Mandrake RPM on Red Hat, both running on Intel Pentium IV?

Is it possible to install RPM of one distribution to another as long as processor is same?
For example can I install, Mandrake 9 RPM on my Red Hat 9, both running on Intel Pentium IV processor.

Chances are it won't work, tho it depends on the app and who did it, etc. You might need to look for the source packageif you can't get RH...
