Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Have you tried doing a repair? Just a suggestion but if you boot from your Mandriva CD there should be an option of repair current installation (if I remember correctly). But back up your data just in case something goes wrong. Well thats all I can think of. Good Luck.
Thanks Reddazz for your help and sorry about posting on the other forum.
Still not fixed the problem. Not only did I delete ' Drakconf' I also deleted ' urmpi '. Don't ask why, it must be the medication. Hi. Have been looking around for a copy of 'urmpi' but no luck so far.
Would appreciate your suggestion please on where to get a copy of urmpi.
Thanks again for yout time and attention and again my apology for the wrong posting.
Go to this Mandriva update mirror and download urpmi, then install it (you may need to install required dependencies manually as well). Once thats done, configure some urpmi sources using the instructions from easyurpmi, then do "urpmi drakconf".
