Your email is really really lacking in detail - how are you trying to install it ? What is going wrong ? What is happening ? What isn't happening ?
See http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

But in answer to the question I think you are asking ...
I would suggest you simply use the packaged version, I believe on RH systems that would be just "yum install rrdtool". Doing it that way means you'll get a version built for your system, and all the dependencies automatically installed.
If you want to install from source, then you'll need to install dependencies yourself, and you'll need to understand how to configure it for your system (should be a matter of "make configure", but not all packages are that simple).
