Go to Easy URPMI and add the Mandrake mirrors (and the PLF mirror) to your Software Media Manager. Then you will be able to use RPMDrake or the urpmi command to install software with all the dependencies installed automatically along with it.

The RPM command does not have dependency resolution, which makes it not so useful for this kind of install.
