Angry mandrake update

would anyone please tell me how can I use the update prggram that come with mandrake to download and install software from the internet.

Load up Software manager, you will need to add an ftp source, so click on the button which says Define Sources. Click new, then type of source as Security Update. That will basically give you all files which are available to download then. You can choose other sources, but after defining one make sure that you Reload them.
