Pirut yum manager, what about CDs/DVD?

I installed FC5 yesterday, everything is 0k, but I have one problem - Pirut, its quite nice program, but how can I install more soft from CDs, not from online repositories? (I don't want to waste my traffic on things that are already on CD), and is there a way to launch Pirut without internet connection (not for me, just a question ). Thanks in advance.

I found the answer: You should create repos for your media, for DVD:
create /etc/yum.repos.d/dvd.repo
in /etc/yum.repos.d/:
name=Fedora DVD

P.S./media/disk or where ever you mount your dvd's
