Debian and derived distros (like Ubuntu) typically use APT to install packages from repositories (collections of binary packages). There are several command line tools (apt-get, aptitude) and graphical interfaces (synaptic, adept) to APT.

Not sure about Mandrake, but I assume it has something similar.
