I must admit that I nearly never use system-config-packages. But instead
of not mention it it may be better to emphazise yum and rpm, but inform
about s-c-packages and give the hint, that it sometimes may fail.
Most experienced users know the limitations of system-config-packages
(and usually avoid it), but it catches out the less knowledgeable people
it's supposed to help most :(.
Since yum now works on FC4 with no setup, it is probably the best
software installation method to recommend at present. This format is
relatively simple, and does the right thing without requiring much
understanding on the part of the user:
"1) Open a terminal window.
2) In the terminal window, type the following command:
su -c 'yum install samba'
When prompted, enter the root password"
