Jude: please tell the group why you think your advice below has any value 
what so ever!  An rpm package file is used as input to the rpm command.  
As long as the file can be read, and if you're root you can read any file 
no matter who owns it, the package will be installed, assuming all other 
criteria for the installation are met.
