Freshrpms - dependency problem?

Hello all,

I have tried to install freshrpms like this:
rpm -ihv
I managed to get this error:
error: skipping - transfer failed - Unknown or unexpected error
warning: u 0x9b08e10 ctrl 0x9b7ccb8 nrefs != 0 ( http)
I think its a dependecy problem since I have now downloaded this file directly and then tried installing again like this:
[root@localhost home]# rpm -iv freshrpms-release-1.2-1.noarch.rpm
warning: freshrpms-release-1.2-1.noarch.rpm: Header V4 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b
error: Failed dependencies:
        rpmfusion-free-release is needed by freshrpms-release-1.2-1.noarch
        rpmfusion-nonfree-release is needed by freshrpms-release-1.2-1.noarch
How do I remedy this, please understand, I am a noob!

Thanks all

Download rpmfusion-free-release and rpmfusion-nonfree-release and install them using rpm before you install freshrpms.

Thanks it worked.

Btw, why do I get a warning for NOKEY and it still installs anway! For future refference how do I get the Key or how can I force it to ignore if I am sure of the source file??
