assuming they are two rpm's you just install them both on the same command line.

Well if I knew how to do that I probably would have already considered that as a possibility... lol, care to explain?

Code:
rpm -ivh name-of-file.rpm name-of-other-file.rpm
for future reference...open up command line

Code:
man rpm
Best way to install software for Fedora Core is to use yum.

Open up terminal,

Code:
man yum
Code:
su -
Enter root password

Code:
yum update
Code:
yum install name-of-software
Tux,

Also, how do you account for WHERE the files are? Mine are in the home directory but I am assuming they either have to be somewhere or the location has to be refrenced in the command?

not to go all RTFM, but i really don't see why we need to repeat ourselves for basic installation details, just look at the RPM entry in our wiki
