    Read my post in this thread for a little help with URPMI if you havent used it before

    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/top...tml&highlight=

    Alternatively you could use the GUI client under Mandriva Control center. Look under there for software install. I dont use it so I cant remeber all the details.

    URPMI from the command line with propoerly configured repositories is the best way to go though IMHO.

    You could test this by doing what the_guy_dressed_in_black said,

    as root (su from command prompt and enter root passwd) type

    urpmi ftpd

    if you have nothing configured but the CDS it should ask you to insert a CD and it will take care of it.

    If you are on a server you could try webmin to manage the ftp server for you.

    good luck!
