Install rpm packages in RedHat


Hi,

I'm very new linux with very low experience, I want in get some packages from command prompt. For example how can get a package from cvshome.org. Actually I don't know what command should I write in order to get connect to cvshome.org and then to get this package
cvs-1.11.20.tar.gz as example or any other CVS package.
Can someone help me. I know it's very simple question but I don't know how to solve it.

In my office I must use only command prompt I have no GUI.

erm.. cvs.1.11.20.tar.gz is not an rpm... it's a tar.gz. are you confusing the two?

Either way, please read this: http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Installing_software
