Upgrading XFree86 to 4.1 in Redhat 7.2

I need to know step-by-step how to upgrade XFree86 to version 4.1 on Redhat 7.2. I have downloaded what I thought was the appropriate files, but

sh -check

gives me errors (I also tried to dl the .bin and change the name, to no avail).

I cannot use my Matrox g200 without the new XFree86 version. I have tried to switch cards before startup, and Redhat finds the new card, asks for Disk 1 to install Xfree86-4, but then I get errors (Warning, a bunch of renaming errors, then it tells me that the ch5sum is incorrect. I checked the entire disk, and the ch5sum IS correct for the disk), and wont install the new XFree86. HELP!!

When RH7.2 was first released there were a few missing checksums, you might have one of these disks. Try downloading again and see if you get the same error.
