does failed using urpmi messed up my "Install Software" / "mandrake update" ???


hi,
went to http://plf.zarb.org/, clicked : Easy urpmi, choosed all the mirror, etc.
followed the step 3) Type this in a console as root

urpmi a brunch of lines, and got a lot of error, after those errors. i realized my software list in my "Install Software" and my "Mandrake Update" was gone.

now i don't know what to do, can't even update files from my local cd rom...

here's the error msg, while i was doing the urpmi thing:
