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.
