# rpm -ivh packages(s).rpm
install rpm file(s)

# rpm -Uvh packages(s).rpm   
upgrade system with rpms

# rpm -e package   
remove package

# rpm -q package   
show version of package installed

# rpm -q -i package   
show all package metadata

# rpm -q -f /path/file   
what package does file belong

# rpm -ql packagename > list.txt
Lists all the files in a currently installed package – there's no need to use the .rpm extension or its version number.  So if the package's full file name is: wget-1.8.2-4.72.i386.rpm   then just use wget

# rpm -ql packagename > list.txt
Lists all the files in a currently installed package – there's no need to use the .rpm extension or its version number.  So if the package's full file name is: wget-1.8.2-4.72.i386.rpm   then just use wget

# rpm -qpl packagename.rpm > list.txt
Lists all the files in an RPM file irrespective of whether it is installed.. Use the full file name, or, for instance, a shortened version wget* .

# rpm -qa > rpmlot.txt
Lists the names of all installed packages, I assume in order of their installation.

# rpm -qa | sort > rpmlot.txt
Ditto alphabetically sorted.

# rpm -qal > rpmlotfiles.txt
Lists all the files of all installed packages. There is no clear indication of what package the files belong to – but it is not too hard to figure it out:

# rpm -qf file-name
Lists the package a file belongs to.
