The documentation from the Mandriva wiki indicates that you select Star > Application Menu > Install & Remove Software
I strongly encourage you to read through the following page before posting again, it will probably answer any other questions you might have, and ultimately, save everyone time.

Which Mandriva Power Pack 2010 ? 2010.0, 2010.1, 2010.2 ?
http://linuxsilo.net/docs/smart-questions_en.html

I.e. you will have to use the right packages. And why are you downloading software ?
http://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.f...inux/official/

Please try this : 1) su ; 2) urpmi.update -a

3) urpmi gcc gcc-c++ : And the compilers should be installed.

..

Insert the CD/DVD of Mandriva you have got. The package should already be present thereon. It will be much easier and better if you copy and paste all the packages into a particular directory (under /var/ftp/pub/) and then create a YUM Repository and then install any package whether it is GCC or any other. It will download any dependencies and will install them automatically. RPM cannot resolve dependencies on its own.

Post # 5 : "" YUM Repository "" : Mandriva is not using 'yum', but "urpmi".

And Mandriva used to have an automatic way of adding the DVD to the repo file.
