Red Hat Package manager: Used by Red Hat and others (SuSE, etc) to install and remove packages.

There are other package managers and formats (e.g. .deb) and generally, you'll only use one format on your system.

Its now just RPM Package Manager instead of Red Hat Package Manager.

RPM.org and the Fedora RPM Guide are good resources for information about RPM.
