Interetesting.  I am also running Linux2K and had no problems.

I haven't gone to investigate it so I may be uninformed here w.r.t webmin, but usually this kind of error is due to you downloading a binary rpm for x86 or something (a common occurrence). It has to be either a guaranteed ppc.rpm, or you have to download the -source- and compile it (source-compile is what I would expect, -unless- the whole thing is a tk or perl script for example). Virtually every rpm for ppc I've seen actually has the "ppc" in the rpm's name.

Try rpm -qpl webmin-0.80.rpm and see what the package contents are; maybe that will yield a clue..
