Where to download YUM for RHEL4?


I would like to install YUM on my Red Hat Enterprise 4 server. Where do I download this tool? Is there a HOWTO for installing and configuring it? My only experience is with Fedora, so I have never installed it from scratch before.

Better yet, does it/will it replace up2date? If so, should I uninstall up2date or will it conflict?

Red Hat does not support yum for Enterprise yet, as a workaround visit the CentOS web site and download/install the yum-2.4.0-1.centos4.noarch.rpm file. It should work just fine using the CentOS updates.

Will yum "see" all the packages already installed at my system?

Thanks for your answer.
Sorry, but maybe I was not explicit enough or I did not understand you answer. My question is not about configuring YUM repositories. What I have in mind is if I have a full RHEL4 running system, will YUM knows what packages are actually installed at my system? And further that, after configuring YUM repos, will YUM shows what packages are up to date or not?
Thanks again!
