I'm using both at home with MailScanner 4.10.  I think f-prot have rpms on their site (its been a while...), get clam from www.rpmfind.net [for Mandrake you need clamav and libclamav].  The Mandrake rpms install clam in /usr rather than /usr/local so you need to edit the paths in the two clam scripts in /usr/lib/MailScanner.  If using Clam you also need to change the Minimum Code Status in MailScanner.conf to unsupported.
