ECarroll, I'm not sure if I understood your question. But, with KDE, you can skip the commandline in almost all simple situations.
So, if you are browsing a webpage that has the rpm you need to install, you can just click on it and the it will open with 'kpackage' that, among many other things, will let you install the package with a click.
If you are browsing your filesystem with konqueror you can do exactly the same. Obviously you can also run kpackage alone.
If you're familiar with apt, you can also use the synaptic front end for an all-graphic management of your rpms.
