Is this an install of RedHat or Mandrake Linux?

It looks like you are trying to install a redhat rpm on a mandrake
installation.  Although RPMs built for on a different distribution often
work fine, you're best finding one for your particular flavor.

This problem also might come up if you try to install an RPM vs.
upgrading it.

Install: rpm -i
Upgrade: rpm -U

Upgrade will install it if it's not yet installed so i've gotten in the
habit of:

rpm -Uvh <package>

(actually, i've gotten in the more recent habit of 'apt-get install',
but that's a different story...)
