[R] Typical R installation problem

I don't know if this is the proper way to ask for help installing R, but if
not, I presume you can pass this on to the appropriate place.
I'm trying to install the latest binary on Redhat 9, and keep getting the same
error message no matter what I try.
[root at localhost mhu]# rpm -i R-1.7.1-1.i386.rpm
warning: R-1.7.1-1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 97d3544e
error: Failed dependencies:
libtcl8.3.so is needed by R-1.7.1-1
libtk8.3.so is needed by R-1.7.1-1
[root at localhost mhu]# exit
I actually found these two files in an obscure location on my computer, and
copied them to /usr/lib/ I also set my path to include the obscure location. SO
they are actually available. At least when I enter libtcl8.3.so it is
apparently read and a segmentation fault occurs.
So, do you have any suggestions about how to get around this problem. I don't
know what else to do to make these routines available to the R install.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I had no problem installing R on my MAC
Thank you very much,
