In need of some help

Hello everyone i am new here and in need of some help. A friend of mine persuaded to let him install Mandriva One 2008. But now he's nowhere to be found and i am lost! Hope you won't mind me asking a few questions.

1) Do i have to install EasyUrpmi and if so how?

2) I can't play any music CD's?

3) There is an orange ball with a question mark in it on the task bar and when i put my mouse/pointer over it i am informed:

No medium was found. You must add some media through "Software Media Manager.

Would just like to say thanks to anyone who takes pity and helps me out here!

Thread detailing Easy URPMI Setup.

I'm not too familiar with Mandriva, but this thread looks detailed and straightforward:
