[Linux-aus] Mandrake vs Xebian?

Am fiddling with a laptop at the moment trying to work around a dodgy 
hard disk. Installed Mandrake 10.2beta3, hooked it up to Cooker and did 
a "urpmq -y kernel" and there sitting at the end of the list is:


urpmq -i kernel-xbox says:

    Summary: the version of the Linux kernel used on XBox machines.
    The package includes a modified version of the Linux kernel.
    The kernel is used for XBox machines only and should not
    be used for normal x86 machines.

Dead handy 'coz I have *two* applications for hotrodded XboXes now, and 
one of those already uses Mandrake Linux for their servers.

Does any other mainstream distro do this? Are the packages used in 
Xebian part of the normal Debian repositories?

Cheers; Leon
