Installing Yum asks for libxml12-python & I can't find it

Hi, I have a dedicated server running Red Hat 9 and Plesk 7. I need to upgrade mysql and want to do it through Yum. I could not find Yum installed so I downloaded the rpm, but when I go to install Yum I get an install error that says Failed Dependencies : libxml12-python is required by Yum. I cannot find libxml12-python, can someone help me locate the file and tell me how to install it so that Yum will install correctly. Many thanks.
