RPM Database wanted similar to ISO-discs


I'm looking for RPM-databases on the net. [Mandrake 9.2.]
I've tried searching with Google and this forum.

I already have the following servers in my Software Media Manager



(sorry, to post them like this, but it's my first post, I cannot yet post URLS, you need 5 posts for that)

the problem is,
I had some "issues" with CUPS,
I've uninstalled and wanted to re-install.
But it won't show up in the Software Manager.

And I don't have the ISO-discs with me (I'm at my college room, and left the discs at home).
I also can't quickly download them and reburn them, 'cause I'm on a laptop without cd-burner.

So, does anyone know where I can find a database with the cups-RPMs ? Preferably one I can add in my Software Media Manager. (Yes, I'm a GUI-user, and not very familiar with the command-line)

I found a lot on google, but the Media Manager refuses to load most of them.

Thanks a bundle.

this is the easiest way to set up urpmi (the command line part of Software Manager)

all sources added here will show up in the Software Manager

(don't know if CUPS is on any of them, but I would be surprised if it isn't)
