How do I install and upgrade programs in SUSE 9.1


I'm trying to upgrade KDE to 3.2.3. I've downloaded multiple RPM files from SUSE. How do I load them? I've tried to use the shell, listing all programs at once, and get nothing but conflict messages. I have no idea how YAST handles this task. YAST doesn't seem to let me direct it to the directory where I downloaded the RPM files.

I'm sure this must be simple, but I am stuck!

To install rpms:
rpm -ivh /path/to/program-version.rpm

To upgrade rpms:
rpm -Uvh /path/to/program-version.rpm

Thanks. I did that to no avail. Do I need to put all these RPMs in a special directory, or where the other KDE files are located? All I get are conflicts whether I try to upgrade or install them. Also, if your or others can suggest how to use the KDE or SUSE YAST features to do all this, I'd appreciate it!

If you get conflicts then you will need to satisfy them or force the install with "--nodeps --force" this isn't reccomended though.
