As Aussie mentioned, it's a source RPM file. This means a couple of things,
1) You will have to compile (build) the program before you can use it. (./configure, make && make install might work).
2) Before you "build" it, you will have to unpack it. And to do that you will need to either use Mandrake's RPM tool, or open a terminal (and "su" to root) and use the rpm command to open it.
"rpm -i kluje-0.7-1.src.rpm" ought to do the trick.
Once you unpack the rpm, the files will get installed (somewhere) on your system. For source files, they should end up in "/usr/src/RPM/SOURCES/". I'm not sure on this as I run SuSE.
Then you would have to build the sources go get the program that you want.
You would probably be better off downloading the pre-compiled binary file if it is available. Otherwise, use the file that you've got and build the sucker.
