I just got PyQt going on Mandrake, and it's a trick.

Best way I found was to go to http://www.rpmfind.net and grab the .src.rpm's 
of PyQt and SIP, edit the .spec files to ensure that you're using the correct 
Python version, and build from source (rpm -bb <specfile>).

Another way is to use the packages from pykde.sf.net, which are a bit older, 
but seem to work fine.
