A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Maybe the procedure has changed, but when I upgrade my Debian system I use two commands not one:
apt-get updateapt-get dist-upgrade

apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.22-1-686
(or select it in dselect/aptitude/etc.).
This is supposed to be a feature of GNU/Linux systems: upgrade without requiring a reboot! When you need the stuff in the new kernel, then you get a new kernel.

But if this applies to Debian, it applies just as well to Mandrake.
However, note that 3rd-party software (notably Win4lin) may want you to be running the default kernel, so I would expect a fair comparison to include a kernel update on both.
So, it looks like (according to the other poster who reckoned that an apt-get update would be necessary) Mandrake and Debian come out even?
Anyway, to the original author, please (especially with the Cooker HOWTO) refer to the more official documents available on the Mandrake Cooker Wiki

Clearly this will not take effect until a reboot.
