Need RedHat RPM help...


I'm running RH9, and I have a RPM problem.

I have a RPM that I want to install, but when I go to install it, I get:

quote:rpm -i wine-20030911-1rh8winehq.i686.rpm
package wine-20030911-1rh8winehq is already installed



When I try to uninstall the RPM, I get this:

quote:rpm -e wine-20030911-1rh8winehq.i686.rpm
error: package wine-20030911-1rh8winehq.i686.rpm is not installed



Argh! Could someone please help! I have no idea what to do...
