install mt-st-0.7-10.i386.rpm into redhat 9.0


May I ask an old stupid question:
I download mt-st-0.7-10.i386.rpm, I want to install it into my old
PC running redhat 9.0. I do not know which directory I should put it into, and run 'rpm -i mt-st-0.7-10.i386.rpm'?
I have other new computer but this old PC has SCSI to run tapes,so
I have to run it.

Thank you.

Please run the command:
Code:
uname -a
on this system and post the output. People will need to know more about this version, redhat 9.0.

It does not matter because when you run the command all the separate components i.e. the program, man pages etc will automatically be installed to the correct directories.

If you post the computer specifications there might be a newer current distribution version that might run on your old computer instead of RH9.
