Need GCC--Is is an RPM with Redhat9?

Just installed Redhat 9 and all works well. I'd like to get a C/C++
compiler on the box and am trying to locate the GCC RPM. I am
unfamiliar with RPMs and am not certain how to locate them on
my Redhat box. So:
1) How do I know if the RPM for GCC came with Redhat?
2) If it did not, where can I get a GCC for Redhat?

The gcc rpm is a part of the redhat 9 distro but is not installed by default. type
at the command prompt. The gcc package is a part of Development Tools. See details of this group, check gcc and exit by clicking upgrade. you will be prompted to insert one of the redhat 9 install cds after awhile and the package will then be installed.

OK, I've run the rehat-config-packages command and chose the Development Tools but when the
Package Management program begins the upgrade process it prompts for "Red Hat Linux 9 disk 2".
I insert the 2nd installtion CD and press OK but I'm still prompted for disk 2.
In a terminal window, I see the 2nd CD in /mnt/cdrom and it is indeed the 2nd installation
Why do I keep getting prompted for the 2nd CD? Is the Package Management program looking
in /mnt/cdrom for the 2nd installation disk?

Possibly the cdrom is not being auto mounted.
Login as root, insert cd, type
mount -a
mount /mnt/cdrom
Check by doing
ls /mnt/cdrom
should not be empty. Now go to rehat-config-packages...

Well, the CD is mounted. In a terminal window I can see /mnt/cdrom and the
2nd installation CD's files under /mnt/cdrom. The problem is not that the
CD is not being mounted. It is mounted. Can it be that Package Management is looking
somplace else?
