There is a good/safe way of using http://rpm.pbone.net/ . Click
"Advanced RPM Search" followed by "Uncheck All".  Then pick up CentOS
and RedHat EL 5 (or 4).  This is a fairly easy method to find out what
is available.  Note that it will not find stuff from kbs-extras, for
example.  I also check Fedora 6 so I can rebuild from their srpm in
case a package is only available from FC6.
