put them all in one directory and use rpm -Uvh *.rpm at the root prompt , it will figure out the proper order and install everything.

I Wish It Was That Easy

That trick didn't work for me. I had to dig around and find the dependencies and conflicts. I took a few notes of what I did, but they aren't complete. The notes I took say that I took this order:

kdelibs3 <- These two might
qt3 <- be backwards

Somewhere in there was librpm and somewhere I had to uninstall
a version of one of those that was newer than the one on KDE3
and then install the older version. I can't remember exactly what it was but I remember it was giving me conflict errors. That should get you started.

Hope this Helps,
