Question libz, libfam, libpng - for distribution

Red Hat 9.0 - new user

I was reading the dependency requirements for a package that I would like to install, and it lists libz, libfam, and libpng as needed. How can I find out what packages I need to install on my distribution, Red Hat 9.0, to meet these dependency requirements?

In other words, how can I find the name of the files on Red Hat 9.0 that have the libz, libfam, and libpng libraries in them?

Please help.

You'd be better off with something newer. RH9 is quite old
