Emacs Installation

Okay...I have played around with this a I am getting let me spit out whats going on..

I installed Mandrake 8.1, but emacs wasn't there. It could possibly be in the second disc which I never downloaded. However, I do have both my RedHat CDs. So I go ahead and try to install Emacs from my RedHat discs..its just another rpm...right? Wrong....when I try installing RPM through the command line it says "tamago" is required and dependency failed. So I found tamago as a src.rpm and I try installing it...and it installs the source in some /usr/etc/ There is a install-sh which never runs....anyone went through the same ordeal?

As you might have imagined by now, I was born for emacs...I can't just change loyalty to VI at this point

I really appreciate any help in this matter.

I remember there is a rpm / software manager that come with mandrake (drakconf? or drakrpm) which allow you to select software you want to install and install it for you.

it will ask you which disc you have (1 and 2 in this case) and list all the software that is avaliable for installation

I am pretty sure there is a copy of emacs is on disc 1 or 2.
