Welcome to LQ.

# yum search tamil
will display the packages
Code:
aspell-ta.i386 : GNU Aspell Tamil Dictionary Package
libuninum.i386 : Library for converting unicode strings to numbers
m17n-db-tamil.noarch : Tamil m17n-db input maps
fonts-tamil.noarch : Free Tamil truetype fonts
moodle-ta_lk.noarch : Moodle language pack for Tamil (Sri Lanka)
moodle-ta.noarch : Moodle language pack for Tamil
kde-i18n-Tamil.noarch : Tamil language support for KDE
openoffice.org-langpack-ta_IN.i386 : Tamil language pack for openoffice.org
And if you have 'yum' installed, just do :
# yum install <package> <package> <package>.......
But it is difficult to supply the right answer, when you are not
telling which Redhat OS, you are using. Redhat EL 5.2 ? ?

Installing rpm packages : # rpm -Uvh <package.rpm>
