you can install logrpminstalls, which is available in rpmforge.
It also has the year in the timestamp, which yum.log lacked last time I 
Very useful.

[nthierry at tryo ~]$ rpm -q logrpminstalls

[nthierry at tryo ~]$ rpm -qi logrpminstalls | tail -n5
Description :
This script makes a log file /var/log/rpminstalls which contains 
timestamps of every rpm which get installed. It's executed by cron every 
day. The logfile contains lines like:
timestamp name-version-release
