Major differences are 'under the bonnet' so to speak. The kernel is now from the 2.6.x series (2.6.3) instead of the 2.4.x series. Biggest visual difference is new version of KDE.
IMHO it runs faster on my machine (Athlon XP2400+) than SuSE 9 (also a 2.4.x kernel and similar to Mandrake 9).
Probably the best thing to do is to look for the May issue of Linux Format as it is on the coverdisk (DVD & CD versions)
