system updates

I‘m a new Linux system administrator and wanted to perform software installation and maintenance. I’ve downloaded a file called awstats.i386.rpm and how do I install it under CentOS / RHEL / Suse / Fedora / Redhat Linux?

The yum command line tool is used to install and update software packages under RHEL / CentOS Linux server. I know how to apply updates using yum update command line, but I’d like to use cron to manually update packages where appropriate. How do I configure yum to install software patches / updates automatically with cron?
