well then you get the dependencies and install them too. If you're going to pass ANY RedHat exame you certainly need to understand that little bit.

As you have seen, rpm does not handle dependencies. Yum does handle dependencies and starting with RHEL5.0(Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.0) yum is the default package manager.

You also want to make sure people understand you are talking about RHEL5.4(current) and not RH5 (lost support in 2000?). They are two totally different products.
