How to install aditional Packages


I installed Red Hat 7.1 and I have Lilo managing the dual boot with windows ME.

Everything is working fine.

However during the installation i choose "typical" and so it didn't install lots of packages like "KDE".
How can I install them now?

I've tried using a package management tool in Gnome to install the other packages from the CDs. But when I "select All" I get some errors like "needs some .libs and other".

Is there any easy way of doing this?
Like the one in Intallation menu where the packages are grouped by categories?
If not how can I do it?

RedHat CD

Insert the RedHat CD and click 'autorun' (or 'autostart' or some application; you'll find it)

it will open a new application window with all your packages installed and not installed, there you can select the extra packages you'd like to install...
