I have just installed Fedora Core 5, but I am now having problems. I am not sure how to install and uninstall software. I have been trying to install a progam called Stardict, which I downloaded from sourceforge.net. If someone can give me some in-depth directions on how to install rpms and run their programs, I would really appreciate it.

Hello:
Well .. a read through here should be a good starting point: http://www.fedorafaq.org/#installsoftware
also you may want to read through the the man pages for yum and rpm
open a terminal and type man yum and or man rpm
