Ah, I think I see the problem. Why did you choose "../base/hdlist.src.cz"
instead of "../base/hdlist.cz" as I suggested? I think that is the problem.
I can see that hdlist.cz is not there, but AFAIK this is the way the command
should work.
If that doesn't work then I don't know what the problem is. Perhaps if you
tried adding the SRPMS repository using:
urpmi.addmedia nluug_cooker_src
ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/Mandrake/devel/cooker/SRPMS with
../i586/Mandrake/base/hdlist.src.cz

Perhaps it will work? I don't know, soory :-( Never tried to install from
Cooker before. As others have pointed out, this may update large parts of
your OS which may cause it to break.
