It's documented in the manpage - use the "--qf" option to format the
results as you want them.

Eg.

  rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME}\n"

You'll want to sort the result, as the names are reported in seemingly-random order as they're pulled from the database.

Here's one I used recently:

rpm -qa --queryformat='%{SIZE} %{NAME}\n' | sort -n

The largest packages will group at the end, letting you know what's using most of your disk space. (For me, it was the kernel-source RPM on FC2 that was chewing up 250 MB.)
