resetting my installation
 
is there any way i can find out the packages i have installed on my machine
and uninstall them.

for example i had installed java sdk and eclipse but i wanna get rid of them and reinstall them ...

also i wanna know how to go abt installing new packages and where to install them so they r globally available

thanks

If you use the RPM package manager, you can do a rpm -q * | more and get all the packages that are installed. Slect from the list the package you want and use rpm -e packagename, substituting packagename for the package you wish to uninstall. But then again this is if you use rpm. What distro are you using first off?
