[root@atlantis derek]# cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 2)
[root@atlantis derek]# locate ncurses.h

[root@atlantis derek]# rpm -qf /usr/include/ncurses.h

You need to install ncurses-devel, just do this:

up2date --get ncurses-devel

cd /var/spool/up2date 

rpm -ivh ncurses-devel-...
