Help Installing SuSE 9 AMD64 Apache2 rpms with yast2 on SLES 8 AMD64

(I posted this on the suse-amd64 list, then got to thinking, this is more a general SuSE question - apologies for the double post :)

I am sure this is a SuSE yast2 newbie problem. But I have read and re-read the SLES 8 for AMD64 installation manual, The SuSE 9.0
installation manual and I have Googled for hours already. Help is appreciated.

The specific problem is with Apache2, but I believe I should be using yast2 for all of my RPM installs, if I understand correctly.

I downloaded the Apache2 rpms for SuSE 9.0 AMD64 from SuSE'S ftp site, expecting/hoping to be able to install them on my SLES 8 for
AMD64 server. Here they are:
apache2-2.0.48-24.x86_64.rpm
apache2-devel-2.0.48-24.x86_64.rpm
apache2-doc-2.0.48-24.x86_64.rpm
apache2-example-pages-2.0.48-24.x86_64.rpm
apache2-jakarta-tomcat-connectors-4.1.27-132.x86_64.rpm
apache2-metuxmpm-2.0.48-24.x86_64.rpm
apache2-mod_auth_mysql-20030510-99.x86_64.rpm
apache2-mod_fastcgi-2.4.0-132.x86_64.rpm
apache2-mod_macro-1.1.4-95.x86_64.rpm
apache2-mod_perl-1.99_09_20030807-89.x86_64.rpm
apache2-mod_php4-4.3.3-101.x86_64.rpm
apache2-mod_python-3.0.3-131.x86_64.rpm
apache2-mod_ruby-1.1.1-92.x86_64.rpm
apache2-prefork-2.0.48-24.x86_64.rpm
apache2-worker-2.0.48-24.x86_64.rpm

Well of course I'm running into dependency problems. So I figure I would use yast2's "Install or Remove Software" option.

So the first task was setting to use the "Change Source of Installation" to point at the the right directory - in my case
/opt/software/apache2.
Well when I try and add a "local directory" installation source it tells me:
Error - Unable to create installation source from
URL 'dir:///opt/software/apache2/'.
Details:
ERROR(InstSrc: E_non_instsrc_on_media)

Is there some reasonably straightforward organization that the source directory needs to be in?

I've tried using "yast2 -i apache2-2.0.48-24.x86_64.rpm". It installs the package with no complaints. I run an 'rpm -qa | egrep
"apache2"' and it appears installed fine. But when I start up yast2 Install GUI for something else, it shows me all kinds of
dependency problems.

I was trying to stay with the RPM's rather than just untarring a distribution from Apache.org, but I'm starting to wonder.

Thank you very much - Richard
