Unhappy Uninstall program


This might sound dumb...and has been asked maybe scores of times......but I'll ask it anyways.
On Fedora 3 i use 2 simple means of installing programs:
-I install RPMs through Synaptic and it takes care automatically of all dependencies and stuff.
-Tarballs are taken care of by "File Roller"....(Assign a destination to the file, extract and presto!).
As you can see everything is a couple of clicks away......NOW...
Is there a simple way to delete programs THAT EASY. without going through the painful console-CLI process?

Add/Remove Packages comes with Fedora and synaptic is able to uninstall. Otherwise, do
Code:
rpm -e <packagename>

Red face Close...but not...

IMHO the "Add/Remove" feature is used on FC3 to add or remove program that come with the installation CD.........and I didn't know that you can remove installed program using Synaptic...
By the way ..I know how to use the "rpm -e" thing....I was just looking for something more like the "Add/Remove" application on Windoze (..no phlames,please!) to remove programs or application you install from the internet or other third parties...

Synaptic is just a front end to apt-get, so it;s the equivalent of doing apt-get remove - just a bit more user friendly
