The actual package will depend on your version of Red Hat, but use this method:
1) find the file your missing:
$ which redhat-config-securitylevel

2) see what it really is (line may wrap):
$ ls -alF /usr/bin/redhat-config-securitylevel
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           13 Dec 26 12:12 /usr/bin/redhat-config-securitylevel -> consolehelper*

3) see what rpm supplies it.
$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/consolehelper

4) If they are spread across multiple cd's you may want to copy all 
requirements to disk then querry all for more deps:
rpm -i --test *.rpm
(you don't need the --test, but it makes me feel safer using it:)

The files your looking for are all symlinks so you first need to find the real 
file, then querry rpm.
