    Open a terminal, type
    su
    to become root and enter the password (it will be masked), then type
    urpmi draktools
    That should do it. Maybe you will need to install some more tools separately (don't know, I never uninstalled the MCC). In that case launch e.g.
    urpmi harddrake rpmdrake

    and so on. For searching the database, use the urpmq <term> command

    urpmi = install
    urpmq = query
    urpmf = find
    urpme = erase/uninstall

    Check the manpage (man urpmi) and the help files (urpmi --help) for learning more about the command-line options you have.

    Good luck.

    The right package to install is drakconf.
