I use Mandrake 10
im trying to install rsynth... the talking program, it says words you type and stuff

i got the .tgz but it didnt have any install scripts (must be wrong thing)
so i got the rpm
boomed out ]$ rpm -Uvh rsynth-2.0-2.i386.rpm
and i get
warning: rsynth-2.0-2.i386.rpm: V3 RSA/MD5 signature: NOKEY, key ID 0fa3ca4d
error: Failed dependencies:
        libm.so.5 is needed by rsynth-2.0-2
        libc.so.5 is needed by rsynth-2.0-2

so what do i need to do to get/install them
and get it working

The rpm is for another distro, with an old libc5... not glibc2/3 ... Go back to the tarball... Is it perhaps a collection of sourcefiles? Do you have a configure script, or perhaps a Makefile? Wait... having a look....
You should read the Readme textfile for instructions, as well as the README.linux file... But basically what you should do is unpack it, cd into the directory and
./configure
make
make check
./say --help
./say Something of your choice
make -n install  # see what it is going to do
make install     # copy program(s) to /usr/local/bin
.... But do read the readme.

A quick google turned up several (for me at least:-) so... get one that suits you, version-wise...:)
And be prepared for some "tinkering":-)

Try run
./configure --help
to see possible flags (where to install to, system type specification etc).
Why not try
./configure --host=linux
...;-)
