Angry Mandrake Linux PPC 9.1

Is Mandrake Linux PowerPC (PPC) for Apples machines only?

I.e. Can it be used with IBM Compatible PC's.

i believe it is only for apples but i also beleive that it is only a matter of which kernel it defaults to and maybe how it needs to load for booting from cd?? i dont think there should be any other things different so the i386/486 releases from mandrake should work identically
