Question How do I Install this progs....?

I want to install Steam and Xmms on my Mandrake 10.0 Offical.

I know that xmms is for linux, and i know that i can download it from but what i have problem with is the requiered plugins.
Plz give me the adress to the right plugins, not the webpage there i can find the, don't know with it is.

And then it is steam, i don't think there is a linux version of steam so i need to use a emulator. I know about wine but that take so mutsh space, so i want to get some adress to simular emulators for windows.

what do you want plugins for? that would kind of help... by default xmms needs no plugins at all.

steam? that half-life thingy? wine or cedga will be the only real options (but they are NOT emulators. They are compatability layers. very different thing)

But wait, why do you want to download it from XMMS site?
Use urpmi tool instead, all the necessary programs are there, you don't need to
go through many webpages to access them.
Read more about URPMI and software installation under your system - this should
save you a lot of trouble.
