mandrake and redhat are similar in alot of aspects, but there are differences. it is not good to install rpms prepared for other ditro
goto rpmfind and look for the rpm for your disto. if yu cant find one then i seriously suggest that you build the package form the sources. if you have problems with building people here will help you with it
I think you may need to include some of the lines above the one you posted. I assume you are using RH 7.3. fbdesk did compile fine for me in this distro. You need to make sure you have all the developement rpm's installed to compile from source or you will get errors. These are easily found on the RH CD - you don't need to download anything.
