To uninstall an rpm package use the -e swtich, such as
rpm -e packagename.rpm
To upgrade an rpm package (like in this case) you use
rpm -Uvh packagename.rpm (not -Uivh)
To see exactly what packages you have installed you do a query. The asterisk (*) symbol can be used as a wildcard. For example, to see what samba packages are installed you could do something like
rpm -qa samba*
Let me know if you need futher assistance.

list ALL the packages that you need to install, INCLUDING the failed dependencies all in one command, otherwise it won't let you without forcing package installation (overriding the dependency check), but this is not recommended.

Code:
[root]# rpm -Uvh samba-3.0.7-2.FC2.i386.rpm samba-client-3.0.7-2.FC2.i386.rpm samba-common-3.0.7-2.FC2.i386.rpm samba-swat-3.0.7-2.FC2.i386.rpm
If there are any more dependency issues, download those additional rpms and add them to the same folder & add their names onto the one installation command.

As an added note: Why not use Fedora Core's visual installation package manager? Mandrake's automatically checks for dependencies and prompts you to install the additional required packages (it will automatically select them, and install them). Fedora core should have something similar (I've used it before, just can't remember what it looks like).
