    Look for these on rpmfind.net; it'll tell you the obscure RPM name;
install and enjoy.  Sometimes it takes more than one.

    Try to stay away from tarballs; if there's an RPM, it's most likely
matured enough to be do-able without being a programmer.  There's plenty
of time to install tarballs of one-of-a-kind special programs that you
really need.  Using tarballs to install a stress-relieving game is like
making a bicycle out of tin cans.

    Google is your friend; are you using Galeon?  You can run the
'startup wizard' and make sure your rpmfind, google, and dictionaries in
a 'smart toolbar'.  I thought it was just flaky eye-candy, but it'll
search for something you cut-n-paste into the little box and press
return: you'll find it.  Very nice.

    Settle on one you really like, that has an RPM.  If you get stuck,
I'll walk you through it.
