I don't think such a command exists. If it does, I'm certainly unaware
of it. You can run 

yum grouplist 

and install the groups you need. That's probably the closest you can

Having said that, I do think that a tool that updates a Live install to
a dvd install would be a huge success. Can't it be done using the yum
groups? A "Dvd install" group or something? Just an idea.
