Unhappy problem installing apt on fc4 using rpm

I just set up a machine with FC4 and am following the instructions found here - http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_fedora_core_3
On the 3rd page it shows this command -
When I run that command it starts to do it's thing, then quits with 4 missing dependencies -

libreadline.so.4
librpmio-4.3.so
librpmdb-4.3.so
librpm-4.3.so

I thought that above command would install the app plus all dependencies. Evidently that is not true? I also tried the same command with the --allfiles paramater, but have the same results.

So after all that failure I downloaded the .rpm file and put it in the /tmp directory, then switched into the /tmp directory and tried this command -
Code:
yum -y install apt-0.5.15cnc6-1.1.fc3.fr.i386.rpm
Which results in these 3 failed dependencies -

librpmio-4.3.so
librpmdb-4.3.so
librpm-4.3.so

I have attached a file of the results of the yum command.
What am I missing or doing wrong?

Failed dependencies is a common problem with rpm packages. Thats why the howto uses apt wich has better dependency resolution for rpm than rpm itself.

Try to download and install the missing packages manually. You will find them e.g. on rpmfind.net

I found the web site for yum and the faq and read the paragraph -

"One relatively easy way to fix this is to remove whatever package "needs" the packages that are about to be upgraded/obsoleted and then reinstall that package after you have upgraded everything else..."

So I used yum to uninstall rpm, answered the one question with yes and now yum no longer works. Crap. Oh well.

I am doing a reinstall on FC4 to start over again. Then I'll check out the site you reference for the missing dependencies.

What I don't understand is how can there be missing dependencies on a brand new install?

Why do you use the Fedora 3 tutorial for a Fedora 4 system?
You should use the Fedora 4 tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_fedora_core_4

Hmm, don't know why, just did, after a quick glance at the fc4 tutorial I don't see any obvious differences, and the box is running fine, so I guess all is well in the world after all.

I did reinstall everything, it all works, and I used yum instead of apt, if I remember correctly the apt web page says it is being obsoleted.
