Yes you can.. at least in previous versions

You either need to extract the RPMs off the CD's or mirror a network 
repository.  (using rsync or something similar)

If you are running apache, and but the files in a directory under it's 
document root, (usually  /var/www/html) you can do a http install from 
there.  You can also do installs via ftp, but it has been since redhat 6 
since I've done that, so the memory is fuzzy. 

That might get you started. I can give more specific instructions or dig 
up some links tomorrow if that is not enough. 

Best Regards,
