how to install vlc media player in mandrake linux!!

hello everybody,
i want to install vlc media player in mandrake linux(10.1 official release).but i am facing a problem.
first of all i do not hv a internet connection.i visited videolan site(at a cyber cafe) for download and there clicked mandrake linux link.but there is whole crap about easy urpmi and all that.going through these links also do not help as there is a set of commands which is meant to run on a mandrake machine.(all cyber cafes hv windows)
so if somebody can help me out on how to install vlc on my machine,it will be very nice.(i really want that media player,it is the best!!!)
