RPM problems

Running RH9 on a P4 1.8

Up untill today, RPM's installed fine. Now when i try to install one, it goes fine untill the "Reading headers" part, then it abruptly closes the window. When i try to install them from the command line, i get a "V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID" {insert number here} error. any help would be appreciated.

$rpm -ivh package.rpm

or in this case

$rpm -ivh --nosignature package.rpm
