Go here:
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/redhat-5.0/i386/RedHat/RPMS/

For XFree86 you need:
   XFree86-3.3.1...  the distribution.
   XFree86-100dpi...  100 dots per inch fonts.
   XFree86-75dpi...   75 dots per inch fonts.
   One of the servers, maching your graphics card (for eaxmple, if you have a S3 compatible graphic card you need XFree86-S3-3.3.1...)
   Optional: X11R6-contrib...  additional programs for X11.
   Optional: Xconfigurator... only if you don't know how to configure XFree86 manualy.
   Optional (but necesary): a window manager: all the fvwm.... files are a good beginning.

Networking: the kernel has all the basic support, maybe you have to recompile it to add any components you need (like SLIP to support PPP and masquerading if you want to use the machine as gate to the Internet for others).

PPP: ppp-2.2.0f ....
FTP: ftp-0.10-1...

  You should consider getting a CD-ROM, is much easier....
