There are mixed feelings in the rpm-vs-source installs.
Tarballs are compressed files containing the source code, makefile, etc.... for you to install a program from source.
You can always use that.

Now if you're using an rpm-based OS (like Red Hat) use the rpm's, there are some advantages like keeping track of everything the program installs (useful when you want to uninstall), dependencies and stuff like that.
So in your case, download the Red Hat rpm (not src.rpm) and install with
# rpm -Uvh nameofrpm.rpm

Downloader for X 2.03 probably means version 2.03 of the program, and X refers to the X-server which provides you with a graphical environment.
