If one use the terminal: "urpmi netrek-client-cow"
Or one could search for "netrek" in the graphical package manager, and it will show up.

They might have to add a repository in order to find it, as not all packages fit on a 4.4GB dvd. ;-)=
The easy way to do that is to use the "Easy Urpmi" website and add one.
