    Does fedora-ds-1.0.4-1.FC6.i386.opt.rpm exist in the directory from where you tried to run the rpm command?

    You must specify a user name that exists on the system (i.e., in /etc/passwd). You could also create a new user with the adduser command.

    Fedora-ds-1.0.4-1.FC6.i386.opt.rpm does exist, but i corrected it with pasting directions into the terminal. I want to know what is wrong with the server stuff. It's reading a port that 's not there or something is wrong with Administrator...I don't know.

    I'm following directions from here I don't know what all of this stuff means.

    You must create the user administrator manually on the command line.
