redhat 9, webmin install, RPM error


I'm trying to install webmin on RH 9, but get the following error:

[root@livingroom source]# rpm -ivh webmin-1.070-1.noarch.rpm
warning: webmin-1.070-1.noarch.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 11f63c51
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
Unabled to identify operating system
error: %pre(webmin-1.070-1) scriptlet failed, exit status 2
error: install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping webmin-1.070-1

how do i bypass the OS check?

this worked to make the RPM execute completely:
[root@livingroom source]# rpm -ivh --ignoreos --noscripts webmin-1.070-1.noarch.rpm
warning: webmin-1.070-1.noarch.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 11f63c51
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:webmin ########################################### [100%]

but, it did not install completely.
