Welcome to LQ.
Google is your friend:

http://www1.mandrivalinux.com/en/ftp.php3

Hope this helps.

Edit:
ONE CD for mandriva is, well, unusual. Maybe you have the DVD? In which case, the software you need is probably already on the DVD, and you can install it with mcc: Start->System->Config->Config Your computer->Software Management->Install Software.
You should also look at easy urpmi : search this site for instructions on how to use it. The search button is at the top of this page.

Make sure you go to http://easyurpmi.zarb.org after you install it. The software repositories there have about 5 times as much software as on the 3CD download set - including stuff you'll want like the DVD playing stuff and codecs to play videos downloaded off the net.

nope its a cd its like a compact one. when i try to install unreal 2004 it has an error for the pakage glibc, i try to install glibc and i need glibc to install glibc, kind of a conflict of some kind. btw all i wanted was a ftp link that has the pakages for a download install from scratch downloading the pakages from the net instead of using the ones from the cd.

The download version of 64-bit Mandriva 2005LE is/was 1 CD, with a very restricted set of software. To get the full version you need to join the club, although there are vendors who will sell it to you - Google should find them. Presumably this is legal as it is GPL.

That easyurpmi link I posted is where you get all the software for Mandrake. Just setup urpmi and you can install all the stuff from the FTP or HTTP mirrors. If you want to browse the mirrors manually for some reason just copy and paste the URLs into your browser or FTP client.
