How or where to add a packet to system so that I can find it in software managment and install it?

Try downloading the package to your home folder. Then open your file manager (konqueror?) and double click on the package. Perhaps you will be prompted for a package manager to install the package.

Suse have modified konqueror to do that with YaST. Perhaps Mandriva have done something similar.
