Package Installation in CLI

I have RHEL 4.0 on VMWare.
Is there a command that can search packages and install them? I'd like to do this via CLI rather than GUI. I'd appreciate if anyone can point me out with such a command in CLI!

Thanks in advance.

You can use yum to get and install updates in RHEL, but I don't think it's installed by default. This site looks like it would be of some help:


cli, install
