Question Searching For Packages (Up2date)

I am trying to find the Apache2 RPM package to install via Up2date on my RHEL 4.4 server and I really can't seem to find a way to locate / install the Apache2 package. I tried to look at the man page for up2date and it does not show that up2date has any kind of search ability unless you know the entire package name which is very unusual.

How can I find the package and dependencies for Apache2 on RHEL 4 and install it via CLI?

The package you want to install is called httpd.

snippet from the man page; pipe to grep for a search of a specific package?

Show a list of all packages available from the channels the system is currently subscribed to, including those not currently installed.
