RPM problem

Title: RPM problem

YANQ (yet another newbie question):

I'm trying to install a package called gtksamba on my RedHat 4.2 box at work. It requires gtk+ to work. If I try to install either package (logged in as root, of course) with the following line:

rpm -iv gtk+-1_0_6-1_i386.rpm (or gtksamba_blah_blah)

I get the response "Data type 9 not supported". I tried the exact same thing on my RedHat 5.2 box at home and it installed perfectly, no dumb error messages, so I know it's not me :)

What's wrong here? What does that message mean and how do I troubleshoot it?
