The rpm that you downloaded is for a RedHat distribution. RedHat in the
latest releases uses rpm V4 - SuSE, Caldera and Mandrake use versions 3. A
version 3 distribution can't install a V4 rpm.

Get the package from ftp.suse.de. After and including SuSE-7.1, the
cryptopackages are not located on ftp.suse.de any more, but on
ftp.suse.com.

ftp://ftp.suse.de/pub/suse/i386/update/6.4/sec1/openssh.rpm
ftp://ftp.suse.de/pub/suse/i386/update/6.4/sec1/ssh.rpm
