Not sure about the Mandriva repos, but...

W3C Tools (replacements for Front Page, MS Publisher and others): Tools for Linux:
  • W3C's Amaya is a complete online web browsing and authoring environment and comes equipped with a WYSIWYG style of interface, similar to that of the most popular commercial browsers. With such an interface, users do not need to know the HTML or CSS languages ..... and its open source and "FREE".
    NVU Nvu (pronounced N-view, for a "new view") makes managing a web site a snap. Now anyone can create web pages and manage a website with no technical expertise or knowledge of HTML. Hasn't been updated in ages.
    KompoZer is a wysiwyg HTML editor (Nvu/Composer fork) aimed towards advanced users. I consider it as an unofficial bug-fix release for Nvu.
    OpenOffice Webwriter is a WYSIWYG web site design tool, part of the OpenOffice suite. It has features very similar to that of Microsoft's FrontPage.
    Seamonkey Composer keeps getting better with dynamic image and table resizing, quick insert and delete of table cells, improved CSS support, and support for positioned layers. For all your simple documents and website projects, Composer is all you need."
    SciTE is a GUI-based single-document editor which uses the Scintilla editor component. It rapidly styles most common programming languages with good control over how syntactic elements are displayed, and features folding for C++, C, Java, JavaScript, and Python. Styling of HTML also styles embedded scripts written in VBScript, Javascript, or Python.
    SCREEM is a web development environment. It's purpose is to increase productivity when constructing a site, by providing quick access to commonly used features. While it is written for use with the GNOME desktop environment in mind it does not specifically require you to be running it, just have the libraries installed.
    Quanta Plus is a web development tool for the GNU/Linux K Desktop Environment.Quanta is designed for quick web development and is rapidly becoming a mature editor with a number of great features and lies at the heart of the KDE Web Dev suite of tools.
    Bluefish is a powerful editor for experienced web designers and programmers.Bluefish supports many programming and markup languages, but it focuses on editing dynamic and interactive websites.

Most Mandrake/Mandriva "newbie" problems can be resolved by going to Easy URPMI and following the directions to set up your sources. Instead of resorting to tarballs and "wild" rpms, just "urpmi NAMEOFPACKAGE" on the command line. Urpmi also has an easy-to-use graphical front-end called RPMdrake which is integrated into the Mandrake Control Center.

Although web sources for urpmi are not added on the installation of Mandriva Linux, they are available at EasyUrpmi or through an option in the Software Sources Manager in versions above 2005LE (10.2).

I'd use your distribution's package manager first, to see if there's a package for Kompozer in the repositories. If not, you'll need to install that deb file with dpkg I believe (it's a command line tool). I think if you need to use dpkg, then you'll have to check that you have all the dependencies for Kompozer or the installation will fail, but don't quote me on this.

I use Quanta Plus and Bluefish to build static pages. You might also want to look into setting up a content management system. I build the templates in Quanta then build the sites with Drupal. I've used Drupal and Joomla, but prefer Drupal for its flexibility.
Once you have the page looking the way you want you can upload the template to your Drupal installation and then add the content. This allows you to work on pages regardless of platform through your web browser.
