YUM is the Yellowdog Updater, Modified. It's basically a tool similar to apt,
but written in python and written for the ground up to deal with RPMs. It is
included as part of Fedora Core, whereas apt is not. It is easily configured
for multiple repositories, knows how to do dependency resolution is a good
way. And it is the default means of getting Red Hat / Fedora updates through
Red Hat's improved up2date RHN Agent.
