Description of problem:
When I try to install Update 1 using up2date, no matter what options i
select prior to the Select Packages to Update screen, I recieve an
error that states there is a dependency to fileutils package and it
cannot be resolved.  
  Everything that i have read says that fileutils has been absorbed
into the larger coreutils, but still I have no idea how to fix this. 
I tried installing fileutils itself and coreutils but I have not been
able to get past this.

[root]# rpm -q --whatprovides redhat-release
[root@psupenguin root]# rpm -q fileutils
package fileutils is not installed
[root]# rpm -q coreutils
[root]# rpm -q up2date
[root]# uname -m
[root]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon)
[root@psupenguin root]# rpm -q up2date

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run up2date
2. select any options

Actual Results:  Dependency errors

Expected Results:  Updates downloaded and installed
