First, try the RPM for i386, not the one for alpha.  (Alpha is a
different processor, much less common, I think.  You didn't say
you had it, so probably you don't.)

If that doesn't work, try updating rpm, which will be in the
"updates" section of www.redhat.com (and its mirrors, and also
surely in http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM).  You should do this
anyway if you haven't done it.
