connect to the internet, that's where pirut is trying to look, it uses yum's repos
If you can't get on the net, you either have to add your DVD drive to yum base repo.
This works fine with DVDs but if you have CD's yum/pirut doesn't know what programs are on which CD, so it's easier to install the rpms on your HD
Well DVD's work ok, so if you can't source one (from a magazine or online order) can you copy the CD rpm's to a DVD?
I think you can install from the CD's, it's just the dependency issue makes it awkward, (although there's another problem, the CD's have a few rpms missing!!!!). If there's cross dependencies, you'll need to copy all the needed rpms to HD.
As a last resort a reinstall making sure you get everything you're likely to want installed.
You're right it does seem silly, not every body has internet access let alone broadband.
