You don't want users to screw with the system. Either sudo or su - if you need to administer your system.

That's elementary security.

Look through the Mandrake Control Center and I think 'drake includes linuxconf for command line.

# Mandrake links
Mandrake home page
Mandrake Users website
Easy urpmi config for Mandrake
urpmi mini-HOWTO
Easy software management: Red Carpet
Maximum RPM
rpmfind
You didn't install the developmental packages? As root, command:
urpmi gcc
An Introduction to the Midnight Commander. You can install it by commanding:
urpmi mc
Midnight Commander home page
