Mandrake package manager - text mode?

Im using MDK 10 and I am installing on an old pentium computer, I wanted to install without X so it is only text mode. After I set everything up, how do I get to the package manager to install packages, and how can I run the update utility so that I can download bug fixes / patches etc.
