If you do go down the Mandrake route you'll want this excellent resource:

I use mandrake for some audio things myself (ardour, audacity etc) and it 
seems fine - can't really compare with other distros though 'cos I've never 
tried setting up another one for audio. I really like the idea of Agnula but 
it seems to be moving at a snail's pace. Debian sid and Redhat/
Planet CCRMA seem popular with other people.
