  1. In my experience, Mandrake is superior to RedHat in every way -- they
     took RedHat and made it better and bundled with better/more software.
     HOWEVER -- I've never tried RedHat *Professional*.

  2. Current versions of Mandrake and RedHat are 7.2 and 7.0,
     respectively.  But RedHat 7.0 has been giving us a lot of problems
     so it's probably better to use RedHat 6.2 than 7.0.  Mandrake
     7.2 has also given some of us some problems but it seems to be
     an occasional problem with certain shaky hardware.

  3. I'd think a BSD would be better for server purposes than Linux.
     Have you tried OpenBSD?  That's what I'd go with personally.
     Many argue Linux is just as good as BSD or better; I think each
     has its strengths/weaknesses and we should make good use of it.

  4. Don't know nothin' about MySQL...  It suffices to say the current/
     most stable version (at the time of production) of MySQL comes
     with many Linux distributions including Mandrake and probably RedHat.
