To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.  The verification of md5
checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one 
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".  A list of
FTP mirrors can be obtained from:

  http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/ftp.php

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:

  rpm --checksig <filename>

All packages are signed by MandrakeSoft for security.  You can obtain
the GPG public key of the Mandrake Linux Security Team from:

  https://www.mandrakesecure.net/RPM-GPG-KEYS

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to 
update.
