Go ahead then?
I don't happen to have Fedora 8 here right now, but as far as I know, you can install packages by
- launching the graphical package manager tool from the menu and point-and-clicking your way
- running 'yum install packagename' from terminal
- downloading rpm files manually and double-clicking on them or running 'rpm -Uvh package.rpm' from terminal

That's about it.

It should tell you which dependencies, install those first.

If you use yum to install the package it will install the dependencies for you.
