The best guide, I would hazzard, would be the Red Hat Manuals, especially the Installing and Updating Red Hat Linux Packages from the Red Hat Linux Getting Started Guide.

Are you sure that you don't have one?
I know I installed the development tools, but I get that same message some times.

You can just use your red hat cd and do an upgrade or add/remove packages to see what you already have.

You probably already have them, what program are you trying to install? Wine?
