those are source code rpms ... you might want to look for their binary counterparts (ie the same name without src, I think)

so these files I think

and then indeed double clicking should do it!

those files seem to be the ones i need.
because when i tried to add some some packages with the installation CD, it said couldnt be found on the system. so i got a hold on them, then i got lost.
also, when i looked them up from the net, they are seem to have that src part in the name

for src files you have to use terminal

rpmbuild --rebuild package.x.x.x.src.rpm
