What distro are you looking for?

If you have RedHat or Fedora, you can go to <<ayo.freshrpms.net>>.

Thanks
I'm using Fedora Core 2.
Do I need to first copy YUM onto cds or do I save into a directory, then run/install?

Unless you somehow chose not to install it yum is install with FC2.

snatale1 is correct... yum is a standard for FC2.

If it isn't installed on your system, all you need to do is download the correct yum RPM to your hard-drive. Then, as root, run "rpm -ivh /dir/to/yum-2.0.7*rpm", and it should install. Then, "yum update" to update all installed packages, "yum install packagename" to install something, and "yum remove packagename" to remove something.
