both distros are rpm based, fedora i believe is more closely tied to redhat than suse. suse has the yast tool, which i understand to be a "one tool to configure all" so to speak, while fedora has multiple tool to configure different things, however, there seems to be a gui tool for everything. you should get along fine w/fedora and it's multiple tools.
good luck.

i use the apt package management tool with fedora and like it quite well. it was originally a debian app but has been ported to redhat and consequently fedora. here's a link to a howto:

http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/ap...pt-get.en.html

it also has a nice gui front end called synaptic, though i have found it to be slower than using it at the command line.

here's another howto with some download links:

http://www.fedora.us/wiki/FedoraHOWTO

hope this helps.

edit: i've found this post to be very useful for those new to fedora, definitely worthy of a bookmark and has a nice section on getting and installing apt.
