public.gpg.key: import read failed error


I am happy to have found this website and hope that someone can give me advice to solve my problem. I have Fedora Core 3 installed on my machine and I want to set it up as email server. The version of sendmail I have is sendmail-8.13.1-2. I need
sendmail-cf package in order to generate from

When I run
yum install sendmail-cf
the error is: you do not have any GPG public keys installed. You need to download the keys for packages you wish to install and install them.

When I run the following line as suggested
rpm --import public.gpg.key
I get the error: public.gpg.key: import read failed.

Can anyone offer me suggestion to solve this? Thank you!
