Installing RPM over FTP


I would like to install an RPM which requires about 10 dependencies. Rather than download each of them and install each of them one by one, I would like to use a command much like the add_pkg command in NetBSD which will download and install everything that is necessary.

Does anyone have the solution for doing that with linux?

Thanks

Snapster.

I have urpmi on my system and have searched the forums and got a bit closer to what I want, however, I am still unable to get it to work. When I get round to it, I will hook up my NetBSD box and use that instead. Until then, I have Windows NT doing just what I need anyway, without the hassles.

Thank you for your replies.
