please use useful thread titles in future. your choice of username is not relevant to your query.

please explain your situation A LOT more, what is happening?? "can't install" is not a useful description.

Hi pravz,
Please write in normal English. I don't really understand 4 dat and other things. Do you have a contract with Red Hat? I think you have to pay them to use their support.

Again, don't use text-speak. Also, don't post the same question more than once, don't hijack someone elses thread, and don't re-open old threads. You posted this same question in a three-year old thread about something else, too.

Read the man pages on the rpm command. Basic syntax is "rpm -i <package name>.rpm", and you have to run that command as root. However, the best way to do this would be to use the yum command, as in "yum install <package name>", since it will install all the package dependencies automatically. This will only work, though if you're PAYING for RedHat Enterprise...if you're not, then you shouldn't be using it, and should be using CentOS instead.

If you are using RPM to install a particular package then you will have to mention the full path of the package with the command.

The syntax would be something like this

Code:
#rpm -ivh (path of the package)

If you want to install from the RHEL 5.2 dvd then manually mount the dvd on your linux machine and go the directory where you can fine the rpms.

For the RHEL 5.2 the default location is /RHELx.x.x/Server/Packages/

So, simply use this command

Code:
#rpm -ivh /RHELx.x.x/Server/Packages/(package name)

But I would suggest you to use YUM instead of RPM but you will need to configure YUM manually as using RPM will give problems with dependencies.

BEST OF LUCK
