Fedora Core 5 Won't Change Software Selection With DVD


I installed Fedora Core 5 just fine, only problem is I'm trying to install the official NVIDIA graphics drivers. When I selected the development group during the install I assumed that included the kernel sources (needed by the driver installer) however, it was not indeed not installed. I executed into the "add/remove software" application, selected to install the kernel sources and Fedora began downloading them. This is unacceptable as I am on dialup, so I will therefore need to get the software from the actual install DVD. My question is, since I cannot locate this, where is the option to change the default source from the internet to the install DVD??

The DVD does not have any source packages including the kernel source.

Or just read the release notes file(s) found on the DVD or first CD
section 8. Linux Kernel, or here;
