another vote for Yum... much lighter than apt4rpm too and does a better job
of determining dependencies.

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?
