Whoops, I forgot to mention what that does... Using the source RPM (the one with "src" in the name) allows you to create an RPM file for your specific platform. After running the rpmbuild command, you will have to look near the bottom of the output (there will be a lot!), and find a line that tells you where it put the newly created RPM file. I'm sorry, I'm not at my Linux box at the moment, so I can't tell you exactly where to look. Then you can use the following command to install the new RPM file to your box:

rpm -Uvh <name-of-new-binary-package>

hope this helps.

seems that the rpms on the site won't unpack because the libncurses libary is 
very old and not used in redhat 8.0, someone had created a new rpm for redhat 
but that persons link is dead. was wondering if someone would create a new rpm 
for redhat 8.0. thanks, i'm a newbie to redhat and i really don't want to get 
into compiling right now.
