# yum install yum-presto to enable it.

Thanks Rahul, but I guess you meant:

"Go to System->Administration-> Add/Remove Programs, and select yum-presto".

It's best not to assume that the user is comfortable with the command line, even while I have no problem doing so.

Any idea why yum-presto isn't installed and enabled by default?. One would think it'd be in Redhat and its mirrors best interest to save bandwidth and time for all ....
