Unhappy Problem when trying to install rpm file


I have downloaded the current rpm file for apache but when I go to run it it gives me the following error:

[root@luckyclay source]# rpm -ivh httpd-2.0.47-4.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by httpd-2.0.47-4 is needed by httpd-2.0.47-4 is needed by httpd-2.0.47-4

What does this error message mean? and how would I go about correcting it? Do I need to download something else?

Thanks for the help!
