@EricTRA: OP was saying "5 days ago", not "Fedora 5".
@siliotm: I'm assuming you downloaded an .rpm file (not rmp). This is an install package. You could try
the rpm command:
rpm -vi /path/to/name_of_rpm_file
A better choice would be to install packages through yum install manager, e.g.
But before you do either of those, I'd check what kind of inetd is pre-installed, because my old
Fedora box came with xinetd in the Fedora install...
