look through the guides at rpm.org. if you are creating this from your own source files then you will need to write a specfile to translate it to an rpm. if it's someone elses and there is already a spec file there you should be able to compile it using rpm directly. check the rpm manpage for flags to do this.

A good one for making RPMs out of source is
checkinstall.
