Redhat software installation in gui, how??


I am new to Redhat (7.2) and like to install gcc and g++ on my system. The problem with rpm's is that there are a lot of dependencies hierarchies. So it is a big pain to do the installation with hand.

I tried Gnome RPM but it does not show "gcc ... rpm" or "g++ ... rpm" under developement section. But these packages are on CD. I can see them in /mnt/cdrom/Redhat/RPMS/gcc ...rpm etc..

Question: Is there a simple way of software installation in Redhat that takes care of dependencies automatically like yast does for Suse??
Any hint to a doc is also very welcome.

thanks for your help!

Nope, not that i know, that is the drawback to RPM's, you gotta zero down the dependicies, there are ways that suse and mandrake use, but i am not sure with Redhat, just install what you think you need, and if you plan on installing lots of stuff, you need most of the development packages...
