How to tell yum to install headers?

Is there an easy way to get yum, or whatever installer I use, to install header files and whatever other files I would need to compile against any libraries I install? The last time I installed Fedora, I must have made a mistake about this, because getting the files I needed for development, or simply compiling software by hand, caused me a lot of trouble. I would often have to go looking for header files, because they hadn't been installed by default, and it was such a pain that eventually I just stopped using rpm or yum at all.

I'm about to do a new install of Fedora 16, and I'm hoping to find a better way, this time around.
