Mandriva updates

What is the equivalent of Yum or Yast that performs patch updates in Mandriva 2006?

urpmi and smart. You can set them up by going to, and following the east steps to configure either one. Urpmi is the default, but I think they are shifting to the smart package manager, as it allows downloading from multiple mirrors.
