1) Read the following for info on the rpm error
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/e...rpm-using.html

2) GNU PG[Privacy Guard] -->http://www.gnupg.org/

GNU PG HOW-TO --> http://www.aei.ca/~pmatulis/pub/gpg.html#signing

The above link will give you information on verifying the authenticity of the file you
download using a key which the author provides and a bunch of other stuff..

3) It doesn't matter where you save your .rpm or .tar.gz files.
