OES Red Carpet vs YaST online update

If I used OES SP2 CD to install the server and eDirectory enabled, should I
use YaST online update to apply fixes or should I use Red Carpet?

Also, downloadeded a program with RPM extension, tried to install it with
Yast but it said dependency conflict but won't resolve the conflict for me.
How do I manually add the dependency before installing with RPM?

Thanks

You should use Red Carpet.

Where did you get this RPM? If it's not made for SLES9, OES, or noarch,
then I would be careful about installing it, especially if its for
another distribution.

Generally the dependent RPMs are included in the same place as where you
got the package. You can also do rpm --requires -p /path/to/package to
find out what it requires to run, which you can then install using YaST
if they are available
