Best thing about Mandrake is urpmi support. Go to http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/ and follow instructions. Once setup is complete.

Code:
root@computer# urpmi lame
There are some excellent repositories out there for Mandrake.

Thanks for the info Peter - much appreciated.

The reason I asked the question is that I have the tarball and am comfortable doing that way. My problem as a newbie is finding out where all the files go, so would you advise puting the tarball in root or perhaps /usr or where ever Lame is supposed to go. I guess it would probably be easier to do it your way but would really like to know where everything is.

Once again thanks for your time and attention.

I had to go through the same process when I had Audacity on Windows. What I did is stuck the lame file inaa folder that Audacity used. I then told Audacity that I wanted to add a new encoder (I think that's how it was. Anyway, just do what you need to do to have it recognize LAME) and navigated to where I had put LAME. It should work the same in Linux.

Well if you have the source tarball then it doesn't make the slightest difference where you extract it because make install will install it wherever it believes your system will find it. If you're unsure, just set the prefix to /usr at configure time:
Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr
