I believe Red Hat 8.0 has a built in updater which will alert you when updated rpms are available. You can also get red carpet from www.ximian.com which will do the same. You have to poke around to find just red carpet, they try and trick you into getting the while ximian desktop.

I don't know if this helps: I think galeon browser has a specific search field for rpm; you might want to try there
