how to install a new application in Fedora 4 ?


Hi everybody, sorry to introduce myself with a so stupid question, but I am really a novice in using Linux.
In a few words: while in the "Other O.S." we normally execute a setup file to install an application, which is the way to do it in Linux and in particular in Fedora 4 environment ?
thank you and see you soon.

You could 'rpm -i packagename.rpm' or 'yum install packagename' but reading http://www.fedorafaq.org/#installsoftware and maybe http://docs.fedoraproject.org/ is something new users really should do.
