Ok, so I gave that site a try, but was not overly impressed with the small amount of information that I found with regard to my issue...I did finally find the command that I was looking for though, the one I could not remember....
I logged in as " su " then I knew the next part was " urpmi " but could not remember what the last bit I needed to type was, and the help file wasn't very helpful either.
I finally found what I was looking for on the Mandriva website, although I had looked before and not found it I found it this time: " task-kde "
That was it! I am now installing 222 packages for the KDE desktop environment...thanks anyway the help everyone...
