    The Redhat administration system are using rpm as a packagemanager.

    to see which packages you have installed execute
    Code:
    rpm -qa
    to see which files that package are containing execute
    Code:
    rpm -ql <packagename>
    To install and unitall downloaded packages use
    Code:
     rpm -ivh to install and rpm -e to unistall rpm -Fvh upgrades only already installed packages
    Does that answer you questions??
    Regards
