Install apps, use repos


this seems to be quite a stupid question, but how can I install applications from the repositories? I use Mandriva 2010.2. When I want to install something by urpmi or the GUI-Application, I always have to insert DVDs like "Main Media", "Main Contrib" or whatever.. but how is it actually possible to use the repositories? I couldn't find anything about it...

Thanks in advance,

Once you have set up the online repo's, you can disable the DVD sources in the Media Manager.

When I try the third step on "Setting up the online sources", I get this error:

Konnte das Medium nicht hinzufügen, Fehlerbericht:
…Holen fehlgeschlagen: aria2 Fehler: Beendet mit 4
Es ist nicht möglich, das Distributionsmedium zu verwenden (keine media.cfg-Datei gefunden)

Medium: Official2010.2- ()

"Couldn't add the media, Error log:
"recieving failed: aria2 Error: Exited with 4
It is not possible to use the distrubution media (no media.cfg-file found)"
