Installing Firefox on Mandrake 10.0

I'm trying to install Firefox on a laptop running Linux Mandrake 10.0. I'm very new to Linux in general and at this point have only been able to install Mandrake 10.0 due to a touchy CD Rom drive that I've been unable to replace. I've attempted to install Firefox version apparently designed Mandrake 10.1 and it's installed properly as far as I can tell, but when I try to run it, it shuts down before it even opens a window.

The other question that I might as well ask is whether or not there is a way to upgrade Mandrake 10.0 to at least 10.1, seeing as how that is what most programs for Mandrake that I find are designed for. I need to be able to do this without using a CD Rom possibly and updating website or something of that nature would be nice...

Thank you,
