Sure there is, install a gui package manager like Smart Package Manager
and go from there. If that's not available and you're stuck with the
commandline then you can open 2 terminal windows, do the yum search in
one and then in the second window do the install by doing a
cut-and-paste from the first window and putting everything on one line
like so:

# yum install package1 package2 package3 etc.

I should also point out that this question is probably OT for this list.
