There is a version of RPM 3.x for Red Hat 6.2 that can handle RPM 4 format 
files. I would recoomend you check the Red Hat updates site and make sure 
you have the latest version of rpm for RH 6.2 before doing anything else 
that requires more work.

I have heard nothing good about the RPM 3 -> RPM 4 upgrade process. Folks I
respect are advising against it.
