There is an RPM...

Do you have the CentOS repositories installed?

What are repositories...

I asked if you had configured the CentOS server addresses so that you can download the RPMs for packages not already installed or not on your installation media. Here is a list.

http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories

Here's a more through explanation.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_repository

If in general you don't know how to set up a repository or download packages, then look at the CentOS documentation.
