Looks to me that you actually want the packages in:

You should be able to get this machine onto the redhat network (assuming
you can find the installation number).  From there you're only an
up2date away from having the packages you want.

Failing that you /might/ have luck installing the CentOS packages (any
centos mirror should do)

If all else fails call redhat?
