RPM install


First of all..... am complete to Linux

I just installed Fedora core 2, experimented with Mandrake 10

I am trying to install Firefox RPM to the system, but I cant figure out how to do it.....

In Mandrake there was great package manager... but I cant find nothin similar in Fedora.

use a command like this to install an rpm:

rpm -i example.rpm

you can also just use the firefox installer... you don't even have to be root for that...

Yes, but I would like to have it in RPM manager so that I can make automatic updates...
