Adding and removing varies depending on the distros you use.

If you use redhat or mandrake, using rpm you can add or remove programs.

Since you are newbie, I think you will be opting for RedHat, so this is the site for you --

I think you should read this well - also you can install any package with the command ' rpm -i packagename'.
