Depends on your distro. If you're using Debian, use apt-get. If you're using Gentoo, use emerge. If you're using RedHat or another rpm based distro, go to rpmfind.net.

In my distro, slackware, this file is in the folder /etc/X11/lib/

U should use :

ln -s /etc/X11/lib/libglut.so.3

to make the file available for every location u're working in.

By the way, if its in another place, then u should go to the filesystem's root folder and use ls -s libglut.so.3 to locate the file, then use
ln -s /<justfoundlocation>/libglut.so.3.

also if U use the source to install, u should read the README.install file, more info is in there, about linking libglut.so.3

Well then, head to rpmfind.net and look for the glut rpm that is compiled for Mandrake.

Or do a google search for "glut rpm mandrake".
