rpm -ivh filename.rpm
works usually.

If you get dependency errors,
rpm -ivh --nodeps filename.rpm

if it already exists,
rpm -Uvh filename.rpm

and if all that fails and you really have no reason to install an rpm according to rpm,
rpm -ivh --nodeps --force filename.rpm

also remeber to get the files needed if recieving dependency errors.
