Yep I followed the directions on the EasyUrpmi site and added all the sources they had availible. No errors that I could see. This is what I got when trying urpmi for mozilla:

[root@localhost marq]# urpmi mozilla
no package named mozilla

What sources are you urpmi'ing from? There is a way to view your sources in Mandrake - apologies, I can't tell you what it is as I don't have Mdk installed.

I didn't know there was different kinds of sources you could choose from... I just chose the default of everything on urpmi.org

No no, that's more or less what I did the last time I ran MDK. I believe the system sets up it's initial sources as the install cds. So it is possible that your system is looking for the cd, not finding it and then complaining.

If you run 'man urpmi' it should tell you how to remove all of your sources and then you could reapply the ones from easyurpmi - if the system still complains, we will know to look elsewhere.

Ok I think I know whats wrong, it's one of the many other things not working on this computer. My ethernet card stops working every 5 minutes or so and I have to reboot to get it back working sometimes so I can't download anything over about 5 megs before it dies (I also have to type this message very fast). I've posted this problem on here before and all i've heard is buy a new card but I don't think I should have to do that cause it works great in windows. Think you can help me? I hope I'm not becomming annoying

I don't know if you came right with your URPMI, but you should read this tutorial.
