Your best bet would be to compile a new urpmi source lists at easyurpmi and try to get what you need after updating from there. You'll have a good list of packages then. Stuff you wouldn't normally get access to.

Yep.. You might wan to be sure and hit update before you select, but I think that what the page explains will actually have you updated by that point. By the way, if you've picked a server that is down, just wait and pick another. You'll be surprised now how many packages are available. I usually open the rpmdrake installer and select "packages by update availability". Quite quick that way telling what's new.

OK, I downlaoded the updates with Konsole and stuff from one of the FTP servers, then I went into RPMDrake and selected all the pakcages I wanted, then clicked install, but after they download and try to install, I get lots of errors, a bunch of files have bad sigs, so I lcick yes to continue anyways and the install fails on me... Do I remove media and try a diff FTP server?

That's exactly what I'd do. I think the PLF sources have their own signatures. You'd have to import the PGP key from the site to make the errors stop. I really can't understand why all the "bad signature" problems. As you may have noticed, i am running Mandrake 10. For me to look for new packages right now (or just for an update), I have to use "cooker" sources. That's the bleeding edge new stuff for the most part and sometimes I get that problem when I look for something. If I try in a few minutes its fine. I attribute that to the server accepting uploads when I am looking for packages. By the time I make my selection, I am looking for a file that has just been replaced. Doesn't happen a lot. I'd remove the media and try another mirror.

I have tried like 6 diff FTP servers...can someone give me the urls of the ftp servers they use? Maybe they will work for me too.

And about sound...I still cant get it to work, I went into mixer and all that, and nothing is turned off or down, but..when I turn the volume up with the volume controll on the right side of my tast bar, half way up the bar it makes a lound ongoing sound..until I turn it down, the higher up the bar, the deeper the sound.

This is LinuxKyle btw.
