Assuming that the commands for Rhel5 and Fedora are the same
Ask for terminal become su ore su -
Yum install package name
If you like to a have GUI for YUM
Yum install Yumex

Also command 'rpm' can be used for local packages.
1) For install : 'rpm -Uvh <package-name.rpm>'
2) Removing : 'rpm -e <package-name>'
.. 'rpm -e' : a must : only the plain package name,
.. no version, no rpm suffix usually.
