How do I install the "info" package?

==> details

I had a server fail to reboot this morning after a long power outage last night.

Hardware seems to be fine, but my boot config was destroyed.

Things I've done so far:

1) copied in /boot from a working machine. Edited menu.lst to have
the right config

2) copied in /lib/modules from the same machine. Note that 2 machines
were running different kernel releases for whatever reason.
on the failed machine and I believe on working one.

3) Disabled http proxy setup in Yast. (how did it get there? Never
use a proxy here.)

4) I can use yast to install a package now.

5) Fails when I try to upgrade to the latest kernel:

Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: Setting up /lib/modules/
