Try YaST, you'll love it... I came from RH9 and FC2 and MAN is it better. (IMHO.)
as for using yum... I'm sure you can install it, it's just a program. I highly suggest at least trying YaST though, you'll never look back @ rh/fc. I haven't.

If you want help configuring things, just lemme know.

also, check this thread for installing the packman libraries in YAST
