So how did you install the packages? If you installed using Mandriva rpms, then the two apps should be somewhere in your menu. If you compiled from source, then you will have to run menudrake and create the entries manually.

You can run Menudrake by entering "menudrake" in the command line, clicking on the Menudrake menu entry in the Mandriva menu (I think its somewhere under System) or running the Mandriva Control Center and clicking on the option to condifure the menu.

I typed menudrake in the console and got the following:
[halcyon@zero ~]$ menudrake
bash: menudrake: command not found

I looked in the Control Center, looked through everything couldn't find menudrake, is there a way to find out what is installed maybe? Or.. where you think it would install to, or even a command to run in a console?

Open a terminal and type...
KTorrent or Kopete respectively, and they should open(they did for me anyways)... If they start up ok, you'll need to edit your menu and add them manually.

When I 'make install' KTorrent this happens at the end and it doesn't say installation complete

../../libktorrent/mse/bigint.h:26:17: error: gmp.h: No such file or directory
../../libktorrent/mse/bigint.h:93: error: mpz_t does not name a type
make[2]: *** [peermanager.lo] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/halcyon/Download/ktorrent-2.1/libktorrent/torrent'
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/halcyon/Download/ktorrent-2.1/libktorrent'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1


then goes back for me to type a command.. is that a problem or would it say finished.. or?

What I would suggest you do is use "urpmi" which is the default Mandriva package management tool. Go to easyurpmi and configure the main, contrib, plf and updates repos for your version of Mandriva. After that start a terminal emulator like console and switch to root. After that do
Code:
#urpmi amsn ktorrent
That will install amsn and ktorrent from official Mandriva software repositories and create the appropriate menu entries for you.

This fixed my problem, thank you.
