hi liljhand, welcome to lq. mandrake is based on redhat, thus it uses the rpm install method. have a look at this about installing rpm's

when searching for rpm's you'll probably find mandrake specific packages at most any rpm site. have a look here for rpm's

also as w/any linux distro you can install from source, here is a link to a guide for that info.

hope that clears up your ?'s.
good luck.
