Does the setup ftp client one uses when installing Redhat get none/some/all of the RPM files?

I can't seem to find them.

Any Ideas?

Yes.  When you select "configure" you need to select the path
where the actual .rpm files are located.  Did you install from
CD?  If so, select /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS (or whatever your
mount point is for your CD.)

If you installed from another hard drive, point the configure
utility at the mount point & directory where the RPMS directory
is located.

If you FTP installed, then download whatever packages you need
into say /incoming or a directory of your choosing, and point
the Configure option at that.

It *installs* them -- doesn't download the actual .rpm package
files.  You can get those from any RedHat mirror site in the
RPMS directory.  My email is xterm@rawx.com if you have other
questions.
