What package manager are you using to install these packages (yast, zmd, smart, apt.. etc)? Please post me the output (copy and paste) with the errors so I can look at it and tell you what you need.

Also, what package are you trying to install and what method of installation (like amlucent23 asked) are you using?

Also, if using YaST what "Installatoin Sources" do you have setup.

Also, Note for Amlucent23, I am running SLED 10 on a Dell D820 (Although I use it for work, and rdesktop into a VM at work for my Microsoft Management Consoles).
