 I take it you are using Gnome. In Nautulis you want to right-click on
the RPM file, select Open With> Other Application and then Install
Applications will be listed in the window. press the Modify button and
change the setting so that Install applications will appear in the
available Open With>. 
Now to install a RPM you will just need to select the RPM, right-click
then select Open With> Install Applications. 
 I don't know how to set it up with KDE.
