Roo, you may have luck using yum localupdate *.rpm from the mounted DVD.
(At the commandline and in the directory with the rpms. Do not attempt
this from within the GUI. I have not had success yet but am getting some
progress at a fair rate.
I hope the localupdate option only updates what is already installed
unless newer deps are needed. I would hate to have an "Everything
install" with all the languages, programs that I cannot stand such as
gnome-screensaver and the file-search program.

Everybody reads into postings without considering someone is complaining
about something that should work without a lot of problems. Some seem to
be having no trouble. I am with this Dell Desktop with two IDE disks.
