Quite simple, you dont have the createrepo command on your system.
Download the rpm or use yum install createrepo.

createrepo*rpm should be available on your dvd too.

You have to first install the createrepo package. Regarding the installation DVD repository in Fedora 9, it is not possible yet. However, you can create a repository from a mounted DVD iso. It is all explained here.

Sometimes you'll find you need to be able to collect a bunch of rpm packages you have together in one place and you want to make them available to your systems running yum. It is pretty easy to do.
