Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

No problem, drop in your Mandrake CD, locate the openssh rpm, open up a terminal in that directory and type:
rpm -Uvh openssh-version-mkd.rpm
This will probably fail, but give you the list of other RPM's needed for dependencies. Place all of them on the same line and install em:
rpm -Uvh file1.rpm file2.rpm... openssh-version-mdk.rpm
This should result in a successful install (assuming you get all the files in the 'dependency' string).
If you are feeling up to it at this point (and have a compiler installed) you could also grab the latest source for openssh (www.freshmeat.net) and install that way. It's a biggie so be prepared if you choose that.
Yet another option:
This will rebuild the database to show correctly what's installed, this might force urpmi to realize it's not there. You might also be typing the wrong string. Try various ways:
The SSH server is in the package openssh-server-3.5p1-7mdk.i586.rpm, not in the openssh package
So now I have sshd and I get this error......
