I do not no what you mean exactly, but yum installs all packages.

To understand package names, try :
http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/yum/sn-software-management-concepts.html#sn-package-names



Then you can use the rpm command. Try in console: man rpm

Ex.
rpm -qi packagename     # To get info about an installed package.
rpm -qa    # To see all installed packages on the computer (long list)
rpm -ql  packagename    # To see where the packagefiles are installed

Try this also:
