with Red Carpet to "Ximian Desktop 2" (Gnome 2.2 I believe).

There is a command line version of Red Carpet called "rug".

Red Carpet is a layer over RPM that automatically handles dependencies and 
checks signatures, downloading all packages needed for the one you want.
It is like apt-rpm of debian fame - but is implemented via a central
repository at Ximian.  The "channel" feature lets up update all
packages in a channel - e.g. xd2, Ximian Desktop 2, to upgrade Gnome.
