libaio-devel a must for Oracle 10G Client only install on Redhat Enterpise Linux AS4?

Greetings, I'm getting ready to do an Oracle 10.2 Client only install (either runtime or custom, have not decided yet) on Redhat Enterpise Linux AS4. I seem to have all required packages to include

libaio-0.3.105-2 however it seems we do not have libaio-devel- installed. Is this package absolutely necessary if I am installing client only?

If it is, where do I get it from? The redhat network may not be an option for me as the machine I need to install the client on is remote on an isolated network, and will not create a display out to me. In fact I am planning on doing a command line silent install of the client if I can.

    In fact the Universal installer will check and say you what you need additionally.
