Installing cryptmount on Redhat Linux Enterprise 4

Cryptmount is a utility for mounting encrypted file systems. A nice tutorial on using cyptmount can be found here. But you first need to install cryptmount :-). I was installing it on Linux Enterprise 4 and was not able to make Yum or apt-get work so i had to use rpm and resolve dependecies my self :(. If u face the same problem try following.
Download Cryptmount, glibc, glibc-headers, glibc-devel and glibc-common and put them in the same directory. Now change ur working directory to that directory and issue command "rpm -Uvh glibc-2.8.90-11.i386.rpm glibc-common-2.8.90-11.i386.rpm glibc-devel-2.8.90-11.i386.rpm glibc-headers-2.8.90-11.i386.rpm"
This will install or update GNU C library on ur system. Now issue command "rpm -Uvh cryptmount-3.0-1.i586.rpm" and this will install cryptmount on ur system.
