Hi!

i've installed a new RHES 4 base system and i need to add new packages like yum, zlib, locate, etc. Is any tool available for selecting packages to be installed? I know yum is designed for it, but if i haven't got yum installed... what can i do for installing new packages in text mode?

Thanks in advance!
