Re: easiest way to keep a Redhat 9 box

Look for YUM (http://linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/).  This is quickly becoming
the new standard for auto-updating Linux distributions.  It works almost like
an overlay on top of your existing package management system (RPM in your
case).  It's quite good, and fairly easy to use.

Hi,

  I just installed Redhat 9, and I'm some-what used to using Debian and its wonderful apt-get command, however I 
noticed Redhat lacked such a capability. However, they had the RHN (Redhat Network) option which costs money.
Is there a third-party piece of software that auto-updates a Redhat box?
