Not specifically a kde problem, so I'll answer it from the Mandrake point of 

Is yours an external drive, then?  Usually scd0 would mean that.  Also, if you 
are using Mandrake Control Center, usually the drive door opens when that 
message comes up, so if you have two drives you do know which one it expects 
to use.

If you continue to have problems in installing from that drive you can get all 
you need from on-line sources.  Go to easyurpmi.zarb.org where you will be 
told how to set up sources for main, contrib, update and a bunch of others.  
Select one source from each group and it will give you the set of commands 
you need to make them all work.

There are helpful mailing lists for Mandrake - you can sign up from the 
Mandriva web pages.  HTH
