    there are a couple of ways to get an rpm package installed.

    1. From the command line prompt, in the subdirectory/folder that you have the .rpm file, enter 'rpm -i filename.rpm' (where 'filename.rpm is the name of your downloaded file [a quick 'ls -alF' will show you what you have])
    2. Go into the System Tools menu (I think) within Gnome. Select the Install new packages option. In 7.3 this gives you a GUI utility that will allow you to install a new program.
    3. I believe that if you go into your file manager, in Gnome, and double click on the downloaded file, it will start the GUI front end to RPM (as used in 2, above).

    Have fun
