i tried that command but are still getting that same error message. Does the RPM file have to be in a certain location? or could it be anywhere? Also do i have to be at a certain spot in the command line?
Thanks

either you were not in the same directory as the rpm or you mispelled the file name.

Well it looks like you are not in the directory where the rpm is. If you downloaded the file to /home/user then you have to:

cd /home/user
rpm -Uvh webmin*

<EDIT>
Sorry arnold didn't mean to say exactly what you said.

I would highly suggest that you get synaptic from
http://freshrpms.net
you will also need apt package , which is also avaiable from the same site.
Install syanaptim using the command
rpm -ivh <packagename>

and let synaptic handle the rest of your RPM Problems. It works exceptionally well on Red Hat 9.0

Hope that helps...
