    I think the package manager for fedora is yum, and I think it's there by default.

    There's probably a way to configure it to use your installation CDs/DVD as a repository. Unfortunately, I've never used yum, so I can't be of much help here. I'm sure you'll be able to find some info if you google it.

    yum is indeed the package manager for Fedora.

    Here is the official page for yum (good background info): http://linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/

    Here is the Fedora page: http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/yum/en/
