Linux, RHEL and EPEL

From this site

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#howtouse

I see the following for RHEL 5

su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm'
...
su -c 'yum install foo'

Open in new window


So I performed the following:

       wget http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

       rpm -ivh epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

Open in new window


It seemed to install sucessfully

What is meant by the  command

yum install foo

Open in new window


I tried yum install foo, nothing happens

Should I replace the 'foo' with something else
Unix OS
