Question samba dependencies

ok, so right now i'm running RedHat 7.1 and I'm trying to install
Now I downloaded the RPM and used
rpm -i samba-2.2.8a-1.i386.rpm

and got the response:

error: failed dependencies: is needed by samba-2.2.8a-1 is needed by samba-2.2.8a-1 is needed by samba-2.2.8a-1 is needed by samba-2.2.8a-1

so I understand that I have to install these files/packages before i can install samba.... I'm fine with that.

What my problem is, is that I have no idea what they are, what packages they are apart of and how the hell I can find them and install them.
Now I tried doing a: rpm -qf
but that told be nothing besides
error: file No such file or directory

So, could any one please tell me, how am i supposed to find these files?
I look at the documentation provided with Samba, and it didn't say anything about need any other packages or anything.....
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
