I visited the site with mandriva 2010.  Got the 'click to install 
additional plugins' and got a fail - no suitable plugins found.  And 
I've got the powerpack version which is supposed to give me access to 
all those non-gpl'ed media type plugins.

So, not a fix, just confirmation that in fact if there is a fix, it's 
probably not an automatic.

Have you tried distracting the user with a rant about the olympics?
