Urpmi is like Debian's apt-get. Once you have followed the instructions on EasyUrpmi and set up your sources, you would open a console, su to become root and then issue a command like urpmi mozilla, urpmi would go off to the net, check the site, download Mozilla, install it and resolve all dependencies.
