Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When I drill down, I find all programs are installed, they meet the requirements of what's needed (>= Version), etc.
how do I fix or get around this??
do I use
rpm -Uvh --nodeps ?
or what ??
last time I did that it screwed up my sys
RedHat Linux 9.0 (everything installed on default install.)
Intel P3 550mhz
This is telling you that installed packages require a specific version of packages or libraries that you are trying to update. If you force the update with --nodeps, these installed packages will probably stop working, since their required libraries will be "too new".
Welcome to dependency hell. You will probably have to upgrade all the affected packages to newer versions (which will undoubtedly spawn more dependency issues).
Or you could switch to a system like apt-rpm or up2date, which is supposed to help in cases like this.
To add a specific to what speter says. You seem to be trying to install a Red Hat 8 rpm on Red Hat 9 system which may or may not work. With 20-20 hindsight, it does not work. Try and find the equivalent Red hat 9 rpm.
