Hi javaid,

If you dont want to select individual packages you can run:

# yum groupinstall Office/Productivity

To see which packages would be installed:

# yum groupinfo Office/Productivity

Eg:
root@hostname ~# yum groupinfo Office/Productivity
Setting up Group Process

Group: Office/Productivity
Description: The applications include office suites, PDF viewers, and more.
Default Packages:
evince
openoffice.org-calc
openoffice.org-draw
openoffice.org-graphicfilter
openoffice.org-impress

RHEL is a pay distro. In order to access their repos you have to have a paid subscription. Centos is RHEL with the logos removes. It is free to download/update (unlike RHEL) and is binary compatible with RHEL.

You need to pay in order to get access to the RHN...

If you wish you can use Centos which is a RHEL clone

http://centos.org
