I was installing the RedHat 5.5 64 bit. But in hurry I forgot to install the Packages needed. And I don't want to install RH again.
How can I install packages after installation?

You have to use yum command to install packages.
First after installing Redhat, follows following steps to install packages.
$ sudo yum update
Then install a package using the following command:
$ sudo yum install <package-name>
Note: "package-name" should be exact as the name of the package present in the redhat repository.
To search the exact name of the package using a keyword, use the following yum option:
$ yum search <keyword>
