install vlc on mandrake 9.2

I need help! I am new to installing on linux, never had sucess. I don't understand what to do. I tried to install the newest version of vlc player and it said on their site for mandrake 9.2:

To install the latest VLC packages, add the following sources for either Mandrake 9.1, 9.2 or Cooker (you can use Easy urpmi for that):

contrib from the core distribution;
plf (Penguin Liberation Front) from the external add-ons.
Then install the required packages with urpmi:

# urpmi libdvdcss2 libdvdplay0 wxvlc vlc-plugin-a52 vlc-plugin-ogg vlc-plugin-mad

I clicked on the urpmi and it took me to a site that you click on servers to download certain things that it required and I chose locations and then clicked next and put the command line in. After it all it did nothing. I never saw things downloading or anything. Help!
