There's already an interface for controlling Rhythmbox from a remote
program, using the interface exposed via Bonobo.  It'll probably be
easier to use that instead of adding a TCP/IP interface.  It's not a
full command set, but it might be enough for what you want to do.  You
can take a look at Rhythmbox Applet [0] for an example of how you can
use it.

If you want to install from source, unpack the tarball and do:

make install

That's the standard procedure for most software.

If you're just looking for a ready-made RPM for Mandrake, someone else
on this list ought to be able to point you in the right direction.  (I
use Debian myself, so I wouldn't know.)
