You can get (a bit) more information and some links here :

Basically, apt for rpm works quite nicely, although not perfectly and can
be used with all rpm-based distributions, which includes Red Hat Linux and
Yellow Dog Linux, both of which I offer repositories of.

You may also want to check out "yum" which does the same helpful basic job
in a much cleaner way, but lacks all the "fancy" stuff, including a nice
GUI front-end (some day, eh seth!? ;-)).
