Umm, I guess so, but that's not what you want to do.
That tarball will not contain any Mandrake-specific modifications.  It
is pristine.  If you want kernel modules you build yourself to insert
into the Mandrake kernel, you'll need to build them against the
Mandrakized kernel source.
Just install the kernel-source RPM and Bob's your uncle.  It will drop
into /usr/src/linux.
