rpm compains about missing key on install

Description of Problem:
right after install, I wanted to rpm -i kernel-source.
RPM complains Warning: ... Header V3 DSA key no signature Key ID .,..
Might be a kernel-source archive problem rather than an rpm problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
You're using rpm-4.1 and installing a signed package
w/o the correspomding key (signature checking is
Look for the BETA-GPG-KEY file, import by doing
rpm --import BETA-GPG-KEY
Verify the pubkey install by doing
rpm -qi gpg-pubkey
This is a freshly installed system. This key import then _must_ be done
automatically during install and cannot be left to the user manually later. This
will a) potentially comprimise security b) confuse the hell out of most people.
Is this at least done automatically for the Non-Beta Key? Anyway, any system
delivered signature key must be imported on install.
Then install with --nosignature to disable
mandatory signature checking.
