Updating non-Mandrake software
Actually getting the hang of Mdrke10 after transition from Windows. It is awesome. The learning curve is steep in the beginning however for a GUI oriented person. I installed a software package which is optimized for Debian and it works well but the author has now come up with an upgrade. how do I upgrade/install it correctly onto my system to replace the old version? i am afraid that if I remove the old version and install the new version, I may lose some settings which I created in the original. I've posted this message after looking thru multiple HOWTOs, the official mandrake site and this site's Forum.
Thank you for your time...
