This is telling you that there is no signature in the package.

If you still want to install it, yeah, set gpgcheck to 0 while you install it or permanently.

The downside of this is that because there is no signature, there is less certainty Joe Random Hacker did not replace the package contents with a script containing rm -rf /

noted with thanks mate.... at the present moment i just set it to "0" first.

Does it means that when the release version of FC4 is out, all the packages will be signed? and I can set the gpgcheck back to "1"?

really appreciate your help, thanks again

You can set it back immediately after you installed the bad boy... it only checks sigs on RPMs at install-time. Now it's installed it doesn't care even when set to '1'.

Yes, all non-development tree packages coming out of Redhat should be signed, that goes for FC4 final.
