yeah--the package manager in mandrake is called `rpmdrake` and `rpmdrake-remove` lets you install or remove rpm packages. You should be able to find it at rpmfind.net, or the mandrake install disks. Also explore the Redhat disks for other software install stuff.

Hi bngrhl!!!

You might be interested in using apt-get for Redhat. It's an awesome tool for installing and removing softwares. Let's say you want to install mplayer, all you've to do is to type:

apt-get install mplayer

Apt will connect to the Internet, download all packages and dependencies for you (in this case, even codecs) and install that for you. Installing synaptic (apt-get install synaptic) you get a neat GUI for apt, being able to install and remove your programs as you wish

Regards!

if you prefer a gui you can install apt and then
Code:
apt-get install synaptic
Synaptic is a gui frontend for apt, and works very well.
