I'll take a look at that this evening and see what I can do.
Thanks for the pointer.

In addition, I have a mirror of the Penguin Liberation Front files.
They add stuff to Mandrake that is too controversial for Mandrake
to have in the main distribution (i.e. dvd playing software).  And,
they integrate very nicely with urpmi, so it's easy to install things.
