If youre using KDE, goto where you downloaded the rpms (and its best if you get mandrake specific rpms) use Ctrl-T to bring up the console, at the console type su and the root user password, then type: urpmi package-to-install.rpm if its needs any files that are on the cds it will promt you for them, if they are not on the cd you will have to look for them on the internet. I would suggest adding contrib and PLF to Mandrakes sources for apps and files. Goto www.pclinuxonline.com and find Easy URPMI Config link.

Good luck
