    do you get any error messages?

    What happens when you try to install?

    Did you install those features when you installed Red Hat/ Fedora Core

    do you know how to install programs in linux (you don't just click like windows). Try reading the install tutorial on this site, it should point you in the right direction and let you formulate a more specifc question.

    I get pretty much the same problem with my version of Redhat 9, Except the only files that I can't install are the .rpm files.
