Getting Apt To Work On RedHat

Apt is Debian's Package Management System, and installing it on RedHat has some profound advantages, in that it will find all the RPMs and handle dependencies and basically just make package installation and upgrades a breeze.

Note that the method presented here still uses RPM files on the back end (and I wouldn't suggest trying anything else on RedHat).
