a little help .... please

I am trying to get a web server up on mandrake 9.1. The package was installed during the original setup. When I tried to configure it, it said that the module was not there. I removed the apache package and tried to download the rpm from rpmfind. It said openssl-prog and was needed for the install. I tried to download openssl-progs but it said the same package is needed for the install. aborted. Help... I know that the web server was at least up at one time. Not sure what happened. Is there one package I can download with all the bells and wistles?

Go to and just download apt-get. It will solve all of your rpm problems for you. Don't forget to apt-get synaptic and run it to make things a little easier on yourself.
