I'm assuming you are either adding more software from an inserted CD or
on the command line doing an upgrade using yum. (Or maybe using the gui
for yum - yumex). From the gui with the inserted CD, there isn't much to
do other than run the mouse over the text, highlight it and then
middle-click to paste it into an open text editor (gedit is pretty basic
but functional - Applications->Accessories->Text Editor if you use

If you are upgrading with yum at the command line, you have some more
flexibility. yum deplist package1 [package2] ... > mydeplist.txt will
write the needed files for the listed packages to the new file
mydeplist.txt in the current directory.

If you are upgrading/installing a package with yum, it will grab the
needed dependencies for automatically. The only times I have seen is
fail in that is when the original packed is not packaged correctly or
the mirror I'm pulling from hasn't finished _it's_ update and the new
package is available yet. So I usually wait an hour or so and try again.

Sometimes, I have a conflict with something I built. I can exclude the
conflicting package with the --exclude=<conflicting package name> added
to the yum command.
