You don't give any useful information, like version/distro of Linux, what you typed in, or what you're trying to install, so it's hard for anyone to help you. However, are you running the RPM command as root, because you should, otherwise it'll fail.

Note also that rpm will often fail on dependencies; that's what up2date or yum are for.
