I used RedHat for years, and made my own rpms for it. Not difficult. At 
the moment, it would be easy to produce an rpm which would work on RHEL3 
and similar systems, and on Fedora - they are quite similar. "Native" 
Mandrake rpms typically use a lot of Mandrake-specific macros, and won't 
build on RedHat. In the other direction, things must be much easier, and 
most probably a RedHat rpm will be OK for Mandrake and its derivatives 
(ALTLinux etc.). Haven't much experience with SUSE other as a 
non-priviledged user (I'm writing this at a SUSE box), cannot say about 
constructing rpms for it.

Yes, this is very good. So, Debian, Ubuntu etc. people can rest assured

No. Fedora uses apt-get to install rpms, not debs.
