You should be able to use the:
rpm -qa
Tool. This may need to be executed as the root user, if so, simply su - to root and enter the root password, then type:
rpm -qa

Another thing might be to pipe this to less:
rpm -qa | less
This will allow you to scroll up and down the results list. You could also pipe it to a text file:
rpm -qa > /home/user/packages
And then you'll have the text file 'packages' in your user's home directory.

I believe there is a text file installed in /root containing a list of all packages installed. Its called install.log, this could be used as a basis for your list.

Try opening it in emacs, the command should be:

emacs /root/install.log

OT: When considering packages to install, installing pine is a really good idea, as u can use pico as ur text editor and it works over ssh too.

Nearly forgot, to get out of emacs the command is:
ctrl+x, ctrl+c
