Installing RPMs

Is there a way to search for a certain RPM like you can in Mandrake?

I want to be able to go to the RPM manager and search for an RPM to install.

i.e. I want to install Kaffeine. How would I go about searching for the RPM for it and installing it?

You can put the cdrom in and search for rpm files but for something like kaffeine which is not likely to be on any of the cdroms, I find a google search is best.
For example:
pbone fedora kaffeine
dag fedora kaffeine

might get you something like this ...

Edit: for some reason, that didn't show up right. Anyway, just type kaffeine in the search box and you should see a bunch of them.
