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.

   You can download libxml2-python-2.5.4-3.rh9.i386.rpm from the follwoing link:
http://updates.redhat.com/9/en/os/i386/libxml2-python-2.5.4-3.rh9.i386.rpm

   After download the rpm, run the following command:
