Actually, all you have to have is the kernel-source rpm for whichever
kernel you wish to compile OSS against.

Sure...you can do it the same way I did my network install.
Create a mount point, like /mnt/disc1 or some such.
Then, as root, "mount -o /path/to/yarrow-i386-disc1.iso /mnt/disc1"
You can then cd all around /mnt/disc1 and retrieve any RPM you wish.
