Unhappy Have installed red hat 7.3 last week and now trying to install X-CD-Roast.

After installing redhat 7.3 on a dual boot system with windows 98 ( as back up) I,m now trying to install X-CD-Roast without much luck. I have downloaded the RPM`s but do not know where to go from there. Any help for this newbie would be grateful

The command to install an RPM is
rpm -i packagename
It needs to be run as root, so if you're logged as your normal user teh sequence is
(root password when asked)
rpm -i packagename
