Some programs.  (Why they did not get installed when you
installed RH 8 is something I do not know.)  One way to
find such things is to go to http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/ and
type the name of what you are missing into the search box.  In
this case, you will see that you need the rpm for tcl, and the
one for tk, both of which have versions for RH 8.0.  Download
them and install them (as root) in the usual way, e.g.:
rpm -Uvh tcl* tk*
(or use the tab key to complete the names).
