Question on Redhat ver.6 RPM's

Using Redhat version 6.0, I need nmap so I have downloaded. But it requires many other dependencies, when I try to install it. See below err.msg. Is there any other way to get this installed, or I need to download each of the dependencies.

rpm -Uhv nmap-5.51-2-mdv2011.0.x86_64.rpm
warning: nmap-5.51-2-mdv2011.0.x86_64.rpm: Header V3 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 26752624: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by nmap-1:5.51-2.x86_64 is needed by nmap-1:5.51-2.x86_64 is needed by nmap-1:5.51-2.x86_64 is needed by nmap-1:5.51-2.x86_64

Why not use yum?

If I use YUM to get NMAP, does that automatically download all the dependencies that it needs??

Yes. It was main reason for the creation of package management systems like yum.
