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

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.
