Questions on Mandrake App installation

Ok! Just tell me this. When I installed Mandy 9 powerpack it asked only for 4 CDs. How then can I install apps from the other 3 CDs? How can I install the sources CD?

I tried to click and install apps like mplayer but a lot of dependency issue came in.

Suggest me to install commercial apps CD2, supplementary apps CD2 etc are not provided in my manual.

Thanks for any help!

Using either the command line urpmi OR the Mandrake Control Center to install the software is probably going to be your best bet. They will satisfy dependencies for you, and tell you exactly which disc to insert to get these dependencies satisfied.
