help to download via http

Hello I need the file "" so that I can use the Java Plugin with the Mozillla browser on Mandrake 8.0.

I searched Google and found some websites that all looked the same and that I could not learn from.

Somewhere I managed to find an rpm that I could download without using ftp. But the name is gcc-3.2-7.src.rpm

Is this source code? Will I be able to install this and have the gcc support libraries that I need for the plugin?

Does anyone know how to find this file via http on the web?

Thanks in advance.

have you tried (or is it org?). Also, you could use apt-get.

Thank you for your response.

Actually yes, I had checked and was having trouble understanding the mapping of the site. I didn't know how to search for what I was looking for. So once I became frustrated with it I posted here.

After reading your suggestion, however, I decided to try again. And this time I was more successful. (Maybe stopping to have some lunch helped...)
So I found a directory structure for mandrake files that are accessible for http download. And specifically I found my file on the following site:

I have "gcc-3.2.2-3mdk.i586.rpm" and I am encouraged that there is no "src" in the name. So this should work.

Thanks again.
