Installing packages from dist CD after initial install

I missed clicking the "Developer Tools" package on my initial load of Redhat 7.2. Rather than going back to the CD and trying to determine all the RPMs that were associated with that I want do be able to somehow just tell it to "load the Developer Tools like I should have asked you to do on initial install."

Any ideas?

Have you tried Software Manager? I think it's in your distro.

I've looked at the GnomeRPM manager thats in my menu but its really just good for installing specific packages that I select. I've not seen anything that gives me a choice entire software packages to load like the installation did. I know in the Solaris world I could go back and pick broad categories to install after installation.

Is there a specific software manager you're thinking about? Thanks for the help.
