F12 General Setup for Installing Applications

With the emergence of yum, setting up general applications and utilities has become very simple for rpm-based distributions  especially with the use of third party repositories. As a result, I have dedicated this section toward augmenting yum and providing information on how to setup some third-party repositories. Their proper setup provides the basis for a large portion of the rest of the HOWTO pages, which is why it has been included here.
