problems installing packages

I'm running fedora core 2 and experiencing problems installing RPM's on my system.Each time I try to install the binaries,I get the error saying "No application associated with this type of package" and gives a list of options after I press the associate with file option.What do I do so that I can install the RPM's?

You can install them using the comand line as root e.g.

rpm -Uvh packagename

I don't know if the graphical tool works coz I mainly use the command line and apt/synaptic
