Are you trying to do this from RedHat's package manager in KDE or Gnome etc...? Try opening an xterm, going to the rpm and type; rpm -ivh packagename.rpm
I don't know why, but the GUI package manager never worked right for me for the same reason, so I just used command line and it'll go fine.

They seem to pop up here and there. I spend most of my time on the command line as far as installation, compiling and what not, so you end up reading alot of man pages. There's pretty much a command line alternative for anything, so when in doubt, just type man rpm or man tar etc...And you'll get all the info and options you need.

we just make them up.. and then seem to work most of the time..

acutally if you perform a:

man rpm

it will display the man pages on the command.. you can do this for any command and it explains the functions and options of any given command.
