I just want to know how can i install them through the DVD. you know , without downloading any extra things.
just remember that for a specific application there may be 20 RPM files ( I mean its requirements ).
thanks in advance.

Fedora 15 is old and unsupported. I recommend that you only install currently-supported RPM's. Do you have an internet connection? If so, and assuming you are using supported Fedora 16 or 17, you can install apps with yum, for example:

yum install firefox
