install a package. a basic question
 
if i install a package from rpm format (or whatever format), does it consume system resources apart from disk space?

Only while the install is taking place. After it is installed, it shouldnt slow down your computer at all. Unless youre installing a service, such as an FTP server. But even then, you normally have to enable it for it to run in the background.
