Question What is the correct command line sytax to install an rpm on mandrake 10?


I'm trying to install the latest wine rpm on Mandrake 10 I've just downloaded but don't know the correct commands or switches

Sorry, I know this is basic shit and I should know it by now!
Thanks in advance

Execute man rpm or rpm --help


The general syntax is rpm -option1 [-option2 ... ] file.rpm
