    "what does sources for plf-notfree means??"
    Forgive me if I misunderstood the question but the sources that aren't "free" are the ones which aren't open source. They're generally the ones you'll need for propietary drivers for, say, a video card and also some codecs and things that are either not open source or at best in a gray area. When I first saw "non-free" I thought it meant "stuff you'll get a bill for"

    plz if someone can elaborate a bit of the above
    thanx

    I haven't used Mandrake/Mandriva in awhile, but you ought to be able to do both of those with URPMI. I don't have any links handy but if you google "urpmi" you'll find some pretty good how to's.
