sorry here's something about rpms..
rpm -ivh package_name.rpm installs the package_name.rpm
i -> install
v -> verbose (let me see some outputs as u install)
h -> hash

rpm -Uvh package_name.rpm upgrades a currently installed package.
U -> Upgrade

rpm -q package_name.rpm queries whether the package package_name.rpm is already installed or not.
q -> query

there are many switches you can use. but this is enough for general use.

what are your machine specifications? RAM? PROCESSOR SPEED etc..??

try turning off unwanted services and check to see your swap. how much did you allot for swap? by history, it must be double your RAM or more? root type:ntsysv
2.unclick all the services listed except the ones you really need

1.type fdisk -l and check to see your swap partition size.
2.maybe your swap in not turned on, try swapon as root
3.if this doesnot solves your problem you may try resizing your swap partition.
