RPM security (a newbie question)



What does the process of installing new RPM package look like? There are some commands that such package is allowed to execute, right?

What are RPMs allowed to do, and what is forbidden? Is there any control layer at all in the package manager, or is the control (e.g., during package install) simply transferred to RPM-package-provided script??

Also what's the difference between "Everything" and "Fedora" dirs in Fedora package tree?

I wonder how easy it is to create a rootkit/trojan horse/whatever and get it loaded on Fedora users' computers.

Thanks!
