RPM in linux

Hi All,
I would like to know where exactly you could know about RPM in linux?
RPM is red-hat package manager - how to use it and things? Any good place I can look out?
Thanks in advance,

The RPM system is a text based system as it is distributed.
There are some graphical frontends to it though.

The man page for rpm is a good starting point for the rpm command
man rpm
