I have tried to no avail to install Thunderbird on this new install of Mandriva.
There is no file that installs, just bin files.
Is there anyone out there that can walk me through this?

Start a konsole (terminal) session.

Switch to root by typing: su, press enter.

Now enter your root password and press enter.

Now type: urpmi mozilla-thunderbird and press enter.

When install is complete type exit twice to leave root mode and close the terminal session.

You can also use the package manager in Configure Your Computer to install thunderbird as well.
