Unhappy Mandrake 9.0 Extras CD installation

hi there!

this is my first post in this forum.

i've searched the place a bit but didn't really find anything useful

i just installed mandrake 9.0 onto my pc. it runs very well next to freebsd release 4.9stable.

the problem: at the beginning of the install i choose "expert" mode so that i can get access to more settings than the "normal" install user and especially because i wanted to install kdevelop from the extras cd.

so everything went fine but when it came to the part where i could select the installed software there was _no_ option to search or add the extras cd so kdevelop didn't got installed

is this a bug in the installer or did i do anything wrong?
and: how can i update the packages? with rpmdrake i cannot select any other source than cd1

thank you for your help.

have a nice day
