rpm installation dependencies


Can any one tell me how to resolve the dependencies while installing any rpm? I am using RHEL5 (unlisenced). so cant run yum command. Before RHEL5 i was usign --aid parameter and if the rpm was in the same directory it resolve the dependencies.
Now sometimes i have to mention so many rpm in the same command but even then it doesnt work.

Does someone know how to resolve the dependencies while installing the rpm?

copy the following and install the rpm
rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
then its done, you are ready to use yum with 9000+ rpm's in its repository
Gud luck

I installed the rpm as

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

Again, I am unable to install the packages with yum command

[root@example ~] yum install mod_ssl
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing pachage install arguments
No Match for argumnet: mod_ssl
Nothing to do

Any idea what should I do now?
Many thanks.
