Question Mandrake 9.2 or Fedora Core 1?

I've been holding off on reinstalling Linux since my last hardware upgrade ... I just haven't had the time to wrestle with drivers, etc. lately. I've pulled down the ISOs for Mandrake 9.2 and Fedore Core 1. Any thoughts on which has a smoother setup for a system like that in the sig below? I'd like to go with Mandrake, but I had a ton of problems with 9.1 and my wireless network that I didn't have with Red Hat 8.0 (i.e. I never got it working in Mandrake).

I don't use the ethernet (USB wireless).
I do use the sound, USB and firewire (although if the last doesn't work it's no big deal).

Any spectacular failures or startling successes with either (or both) of these?
