Spell out your words, use capital letters, and punctuation. Your 'question' is very hard to read and follow.

What kind of hardware are you installing things on? And are you PAYING for RHEL?? If you are, you can call RHEL for support, and they'll help you through all your problems. If you're not, DON'T use RHEL. RedHat Enterprise is made for servers...not consumer-grade hardware. Things like wireless USB dongles, WiFi, sound, etc., can be made to work under RHEL, but are supported much easier from other open distros.

I suggest you load Ubuntu, and go with it. Chances are, things will 'just work' right off the bat. And you say you're trying to install RPM's, tar, gz., etc., but don't bother telling us the error(s) you're getting, or WHAT you're trying to install. The reason you can't just install packages, is because you're not paying for access to the RHEL repositories, where you could install with one click or command. Again, use Ubuntu, or another community supported distro, and alot of these problems will go away.
