RH and package search


I used to use Mandrake 9.0 and I wanted to try out RH 8. I liked how in MDK you could go into the control panel and search for installed packages that contain a certain a string. Is there something in RH that can do that or is there a utility that allows searching for rpms. I want something that can search based on anything. Thanks.

Well you can do this from the shell:

rpm -qa | grep whateverpackage

or in your log files:

System Tools-->System Logs

there is a log of all installed packages.

ok, that was exactly what I was looking for. Now, how can I search what RPM's haven't been installed but are still on the RH8 discs?
