mandrake 9.0 update questions.

So i just got done with a mandrake 9.0 install, and after booting up find it has kde 3.0 and no sound... So i swung by the online update option, and every ftp server gives an error, and mandrake suggests that updating might have been pulled for 9.0 can anyone confirm this? and if that is the case, where can i get the updates? And last question - i am downloading kde 3.2, how would i go installing it in mandrake, i did it in suse, but mandrake im not sure how.

Thank you,

About the update i have no idea, but talking about the sound, did you check alsamixer, aumix or kmix, check that they arenīt muted, plus play a little with alsamixer(or the one you prefer) to see if the sound works,
About installing kde 3.2.x i installed 3.2.3 in Fedora from rpms packages i downloaded, make sure you downloaded the kde packages you need( if you can, download them all )
Installing kde : 1)first edit /etc/inittab and switch to runlevel 3 , reboot
2) su - , install the rpms all together, rpm -Uvh file1.rpm file2.rpm .....
3) switch back to runlevel 5, reboot
And that is pretty mcuh it,
hope it helps,
