I see you're running mandrake 10.1 There are about 600-700 megs of security, bug-fix, and plain old updates on mandrake 10.1 from a virgin install to present day, if you update everything!! On a dial-up, I'd recommend picking and choosing...

Hope this helped

If you know someone with broadband, get them to download the updates for you, then just add a new local repo into yum and do the updates.
