i can't install RPM's using add/remove apps in FC2

I'm having a problem with the Package Manager giving me a Package Not Found error message.

This is the error message I get:

Package Not Found

The following package could not be found on your system. Installation cannot continue until it is installed.

samba-common ('samba-client', '3.0.10', '1.fc2')

I even went so far as to download the samba-common package myself and install it, but rpm -Uvh says the package is already installed.

Have you tried installing via command line?
If so, does it work?
