Look about 2/3 of the way down this page

You probably need the server program 'dictd'

I also installed the client program 'dict' so I could use it from the terminal prompt. I got all the programs and databases from the regular Debian Archives, but you should be able to figure out where to get .rpms ... or whatever Mandrake uses.

rickh's suggestion is great (he already helped me). For GUI interface you can use stardict.
