You have enabled checking of packages via GPG keys. This is a good thing.
However, you do not have any GPG public keys installed. You need to download
the keys for packages you wish to install and install them.
You can do that by running the command:
    rpm --import public.gpg.key
For more information contact your distribution or package provider.
[root@dallasraymobile dallasray]# rpm --import public.gpg.key
error: public.gpg.key: import read failed.

For example, if you use Fedora Core 3
run as root this

rpm --import /usr/share/doc/fedora-release-3/RPM-GPG-KEY*

to import GPG public keys.
If you use another distribution find correspont keys.

If you use FC3 but have no /usr/share/doc/fedora-release-3/ files
install RPM for that

rpm -Uhv fedora-release-3-8

And then, make rpm import
