Need libXi - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I am running RedHat Linux 9 (Intel), which I upgraded from RedHat Linux 7.2. I need to use the libXi.so library, and for some reason it is not installed on my system. Where can I find this library so I can install it?...

    Okay, so it turns out I do have the library after all.

    I tried "whereis libXi" and it never returned anything, so I assumed I
    didn't have it. Knowing where to look (/usr/X11R6/lib), was extremely
    helpful.

    I guess I won't trust whereis as much anymore and do a more thorough
    search next time before I assume something is missing.
