    hi,

    you can do as follows

    1) create a file (say dvd.repo) under /etc/yum.repos.d/ and put what follows in
    Code:
    [dvd]
    name=Fedora 9 DVD
    baseurl=file:///dvd_mount_point
    enabled=1
    gpgcheck=0
    2) install with yum(you can disable the repositories you dont want yum to check)
    Code:
    yum --disablerepo=<repo to disable> install <package name>
    Linux and me it's a love story
