Smile loading source code

hey. i'm reading this book and it's tellin me how to install the redhat source code packages. it tells me to:
1. cd mnt/cdrom/SPRMS
2. rpm -iv [name of package].src.rpm
3. cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
4. rpm -bp [name of package].spec
everything went smoothly until i got to step 4. i entered in the command and it said "-b not an option" or somethin like that. i need to know what option i do use in this situation. btw, i want to install this to both see what the source code looks like and to practice installing packages.
