Question ethereal install -- help!

runining rh9
trying to install ethereal 0.10.xx
i am getting a dependancy error staing that ucd-snmp is needed? this, as far as i know is now net-snmp?

i have tried downloading many different packages from ethereal and installing them. some depend on the others. Finally exhausted of this issue i tried to install the actual 0.9.xx version that came with rh9. inserted cd and it in fact tell me it installedl. BUT.. where is it!? did a where is: show in /etc. cannot run it from bash or anything. How can i get this running?

For days now i have been hitting dead ends.? maybe i am a newbie and nieve but why is ethereal so hard to install on a linux machine?

any ideas/tricks would be of great help and appreciated. i am new to linux but definely not to computers. I have heard great things about ethereal and use it on XP as well as whatsup gold.

I use linux fbecause i like these kinds of challenges but this ones making me nuts
