Software/Packages for Moblin 2.0

Hey There,

So I installed Moblin 2.0 this morning and I like except for the fact that it disticntly is lacking in the area of packages - namly I would like to add Firefox, Pidgin, and OpenOffice. I at least need the latter of the three to do school work on the operating system. I know Moblin is based on Fedora but can I installed Fedora RPMs on it? How do I go about adding software to it?

The searched around on Google but wasn't able to come up with anything
