Well I assume the packages were in rpm format if they came off the cd. I am not sure about that version of red hat but in the newer versions there is a add/remove applications and you can select them in that. In redhat 9 its under system settings (kde 3). If you know the exact names of the packages you want to remove you can use the command rpm -e <packagename> and that should remove it. I am not sure if this will help you, but maybe turn you in the right direction!
