Install Yum on minimal CentOS

Hello all!

I ran into an interesting issue with a “minimal” CentOS installation and had to help a colleague install Yum on a server where only rpm existed. Here’s the final RPM line I used:

rpm -Uvh

This should install Yum and all the required depedancies for CentOS 5 x86_64 (at the time of this writing). Once this is ran, yum should be available to install any other software needed.
