But I got error message:

Retrieving http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/fedora/...6.fc4.i386.rpm
error: /var/tmp/rpm-xfer.Xz4sXE: headerRead failed: hdr blob(42126): BAD, read returned 7736

Any help will much appreciated!

For me it looks like the rpm package was corrupted during download. Have you executed the command as root user?

You can try to download the package first and the install it:

Code:
wget http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/fedora/linux/extras/4/i386/apt-0.5.15cnc7-6.fc4.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh apt-0.5.15cnc7-6.fc4.i386.rpm
