Mandrake Update not working - Proxy?


I have setup a test machine with Mandrake 9.2 at work. When I try to run Mandrake Update, it gives an error:

"I can't find any suitable mirror."

& suggests that my processor architecture is not supported my Mandrake Update. I have a dual pentium 400. I am setting behind a proxy server, but when I set Konqueror to autodetct, it works fine. Do I need to put in proxy info somewhere for Mandrake Update?

I finally figured this out myself. As I suspected, it was a proxy issue. When I opened the software manager there is a button there to add in the proxy info. This does not show up anywhere with Mandrake Update, at least not that I had found.
