Well, I have finally found the time to return to this forum, and boot up my Mandriva 2006 after many months. However, I have suddenly remembered why I haven't returned to it for so long: I couldn't install programs. I have still not been able to install any of the programs that I have wanted to since the beginning.

I consider Firefox 2 to be the most important program I need to install, so I will ask for assistance for this program only for now. '06 contains only 1.0.x, so I really need to update. I don't want to update to 2007 - I don't have the time, and I don't want to waste 3 more CD-Rs. I have found this little guide, which I have found be of some help, but not a lot, since it doesn't cover Firefox. So anyways, based on the guide's part about installing Flash Player, I tried this to install:
wget -c
tar zxvf firefox-2.0.tar.gz
and that's as far as I could get it to go. Could anyone explain how to complete the installation?

And if anyone could explain general rules on installing programs (eg. commands), please tell me, I would appreciate it.

BTW, while I'm on the topic of frustration, anyone know of where I could find a good manual for Mandriva online for free?

Thanks for your time. I'm sorry if I already asked about something similar before, I just find constantly using Konsole hard.
