I have written a tutorial about apt on rpm-based distributions.
In this short tutorial I will show how to install and use Debian's package manager apt on various rpm-based distributions like Fedora, Mandrake (or Mandriva, they changed their name...), RedHat, SUSE, and Yellow Dog Linux. apt for rpm is also known as apt4rpm, or aptrpm.

This tutorial is split into two parts: in the first I will demonstrate how to install and use apt based on an example (apt on SUSE 9.2), and in the second part I will give you an overview of the packages to install and the package repositories for each distribution mentioned above.
