    I think you need the desktop-devel package. Try this:

    urpmi kernel-desktop-devel-2.6.17.13mdv


    BTW, if you want to setup urpmi to allow you to fetch stuff directly off the internet, here's a little script I setup to do that for me the way I like it. You'll have to correct the SITE variable for your Mandriva version in addition to the MIRROR variable.
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    # This sets the sources of urpmi.  Go to these sites to find a mirror  
    # site and then edit the MIRROR variable below.
    #
    #   http://mandriva.com/en/download/
    #   http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/
    
    MIRROR=http://EDIT-ME.com/pub/mandrake
    SITE=$MIRROR/official/2008.0/i586/media
    LIST=media_info/hdlist.cz
    
    urpmi.addmedia          main             $SITE/main/release     with $LIST
    urpmi.addmedia --update main_updates     $SITE/main/updates     with $LIST
    urpmi.addmedia          contrib          $SITE/contrib/release  with $LIST
    urpmi.addmedia --update contrib_updates  $SITE/contrib/updates  with $LIST
    urpmi.addmedia          non-free         $SITE/non-free/release with $LIST
    urpmi.addmedia --update non-free_updates $SITE/non-free/updates with $LIST

    If you are using Atheros cards, you could try the madwifi driver that is available in the Mandriva repos.

    What I meant was that you should use the madwifi packages shipped by mandriva. You can install them by doing "urpmi madwifi" as root in the command line.
