Patrick, the problem is that the really knowledgable people are very busy and 
the rest of us are, well, not very knowledgable. Until they dropped KDE 3 for 
KDE 4 I was a very happy user of PCLinuxOS where everything was very easy and 
we used to say that "everything just worked."

Ignorance really was bliss.   :-)

Anyway, Fedora uses the "yum" utility according to Wikipedia. There is a short 
tutorial on yum available at
http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/rhel-centos-fedora-linux-yum-command-howto/
in English. I'm sure you could also find one in French.

Wikipedia also says that "apt-rpm is an alternative to yum, and may be more 
familiar to people used to Debian or Debian-based distributions,"
and perhaps you might want to Google apt-rpm, though yum might be safer being 
the native utility.

Yeah, maybe next year, or the year after that...   :-)
