Angry PSM Installation help


I am newbie to Linux and I have just bought RH9, I have installed it and everything is working fine but I can not visit RHN because I do not have PSM installed. I have downloaded it from the net but I am not able to instal it becasue I am doing something worng and I do not know what.
could you please direct me to a website that has a good step by step of how to install the PSM RPM as well as all the dependencies if needed?
also, what is good wbsite to find doc on how to for redhat?
and last question is how do I disable screen saver?

Zaid,

Could you tell us where you got the PSM rpm from? We would then have a better chance of telling you how to go about it.

Edit - Actually - forget the above. I've been to RPM Resource. Does your downloaded file end in .src.rpm? If so it is a source rpm and when run will create an rpm for your system. If it ends in .rpm without the src it can be installed by typing rpm -ivh <packagename>.rpm.

I did notice though that there are a number of dependencies which will need to be installed beforehand.

Did you read through the instructions here and here?

It seems to involve a fair bit of work to get this running.
