How to update kde for mandrake

I know many users have asked the same question, but I still can't get it to work. Well, it's more like I don't what to do next.

I visited, and saw a list of kde packages for mandrake. The install guide in that site basically wants me to do the installation for each package.

Is there a simple way to update all packages instead of installing a package one at a time?

well your command would be different...........

In slackware to upgrade all packages in the same directory would be this..........
upgradepkg *.tgz
the "*" is just a wildcard meaning all packages ending in "tgz".........

The commands you guys are posting are for Slackware and they are no good on Mandriva. You need to download the KDE packages and then create a local urpmi repository and then upgrade using rpmdrake or in a terminal emulator using the "urpmi --auto-select" command".
