Mandrake has URPMI, it's like apt-get but for RPMs. It's great, very user
friendly, graphical. You just click on an RPM, and if any deps are missing, it
just pops up a window saying "Insert Linux Mandrake CD x" where x is the number
of the CD where the missing dependency is, and it just installs everything for
you. So you just click on a RPM, put in a CD if the system asks you, and the
software installs in seconds. You can even add a remote source, such as a FTP
server. It's all GPL so I really don't know why other distros don't use it.
