A
First things first - you must be registered with RedHat (i.e rhn_check -v should come out without errors)
If not check if you can register with your boss etc.

B
How to install snmp?
yum provides /etc/snmp
yum install "x-y"
where x-y is package name from previous step

C
Where to write community string?
/etc/snmp/snmpd.conf

D
How to start snmpd?
service snmpd start

E
How to do so at boot?
chkconfig snmpd on

F
Veee it times out?
Allow 161/UDP with system-config-firewall-tui

Dear i already did this what u write above i know how to start/stop what is the config file and how to use yum.

i just want to know the right parameters in snmpd.conf file just to save the time.as this file contains lot of configuration and on google there are hunderds of ways which are confusing.

i have changed only this line

com2sec  notcofiguser 172.16.0.9  community

Thats the right spot.
Add 127.0.0.1 too to easily check if SNMPD is responding before banging your head against fire-WALL
