Don't want to start a distro war, but do they give good reasons?  I mean 
Mandrake was based on redhat to start with.  I actually ran Fedora 4 for 
a while, then switched to Mandriva because it was a more complete 
distro, and easier to setup. It sits higher on the distrowatch website's 
page hit ranking too. 

Of course, none of that amounts to much if it doesn't work :-(  To tell 
the truth, if I was to switch, I might consider Suse, as we use that at 
work - mainly because of the support from Novell.

Oh and Jarod's guide pretty much applied to what I had to do to install 
mythtv under Mandriva.  I used it extensively.
