Is your CD dirty?  Try copying the file off of the CD onto your hardrive 
somewhere, and see if it gives errors when you try the copy.  If it doesn't 
give errors, then try installing the hardrive copy.  Also, to keep things 
simple, install from the shell (as root), without using any RPM 

rpm -ivh XFree86-devel-4.1.0-3.i386.rpm

And just for fun, here is an md5 (made with the md5sum command) of my 


It might be worth it to run md5sum on your rpm to verify that the file isn't 
corrupt.  But I have a feeling that your CD reader is having problems with 
the disk.  Is the disk a burned copy of RH?  Some readers don't handle all 
burned disks equally well.
