Why upgrade the kernel? If the old one works, keep using it.
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
