Best way is to configure yum or apt to install your software. This will solve all your dependency issues.
Any software you need to install will have dependencies and it will look for the packages it depends on.
The package managers will help you in solving this issue by installing the dependencies with the package or software you want to install.

Did you find out if you have paid support from redhat yet (as suggested in one of your other threads)?

You probably were posting while I was, but if you have support, I'd use it

I havent used apt on red hat much. It is a debian tool but it is available as rpm on dag wieers.
If you search the site you will find the rpm for apt for your version.
But as billymayday suggested, you better first find out if you paid subscription from Red Hat. If you have that, you can use update command.

There should not be any issue with installation. Only difference is that you will not receive the updates from red Hat.

If you feel that company must have paid for the subscription to Red Hat, just find it out if you can use it?
If yes, then you have your problem solved. If they do not want you to use it then you can download the rpm from dag wieers.

Go to dag.wieers.com/rpm and search for the rpm for apt for rhel5. You still need to install some other rpm with apt as well to make it work. You will get what other rpm you need on the site itself.

You might want to check again about your license. Most companies are not happy about using non RH repos(security concerns).

RHEL5 has yum installed by default(up2date was dropped). Even if you do not have a license you would be more within RH proticol by reconfiguring you /etc/yum.repos.d/ files to use non RH repos.

I would say give some attention to the advice given by lazlow.
Corporates may allow you to use the license from RH. I have no idea if RH license is similar to MS with per user license or if once paid for subscription any number of systems can be installed with the subscription.
If later is the case there is no reason why they will not allow you to use it.
