Well, sourceforge.net will have them all, just search, but here's a couple

gkrellm - system monitor
http://web.wt.net/~billw/gkrellm/gkrellm.html

mplayer - multimedia player
www.mplayerhq.hu

The upgrade can vary between distros. I have no clue what tools are available to mandrake.

Assuming whatever file you are talking about is executable, go to the directory it is located in and type ./filename


It may help if you tell us what file
