Red face rpm dependency problem

I am trying to install a statistics package called R on a version 7.3 redhat system with rpm. When I type rpm -i R-1....rpm (... revers to the long name of the .rpm file), I get a list of "failed dependencies" such as and so on (all a bunch of libraries that are actually on my computer); I tried running the rpm -i command in the directory where the libraries actually are, but no help. I was wondering if there is anything I can do to remedy this, like to specify the path of these files?

Try querying the RPM package you downloaded. rpm -qpR [file.rpm] and then make sure you satisfy each of those dependancies. Its best to install using rpm -Uvh. It works even on packages that have'nt been installed yet. When you get all your deps into a temporary work dir, try doing rpm -Uvh *rpm in that dir. Usually this works to install a bunch of rpms that are present to satisfy all the inter dependancies for a package.
