On my system:

locate libpng12.so.0
gives me:  /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0

urpmf /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0
gives me:  libpng3 /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0

You must install libpng3.

However, if I do:

rpm -q libpng3

I get libpng3-1.2.4-3.1mdk.i586.rpm

This is not the version on the original mandrake 8.2 installation CD, it 
is an update mandrake has furnished since.

So, if installing libpng3 from your original installion CD won't work, 
download the update from mandrake mirrors (its about 160 Kb)

/pub/Mandrake_Mirror/Mandrake/updates/8.2/RPMS> libpng3-1.2.4-3.1mdk.i586.rpm

Please let me know how it worked.
