Are you installing this rpm on an FC3 system without other upgrades from 
rawhide?

I used up2date to install this version on an FC3 system. It required 
newer versions of kernel related packages for the installation to be 
successful. I uncommented the devel repo to install the kernel and 
openoffice, performed the upgrade, then recommented out the devel repo.

I'm not sure as to whether you are running rawhide or fc3. Just a note 
on trying to install packages via clicking on the rpm and letting 
system-config-packages handle the installation. This method might have 
worked, but it would have taken a very long time to solve the deps 
needed before the instalations actualy completed.
