using YUM without internet connection


Hi,
I have installed Fedora 5 on a headless machine, and so only have command line access.
This machine also has no acces to the WWW.
I have the original cd's.
How do I look at the available packages to install from the cd's.
I have tried YUM but that just goes off trying to look at the internet and then halts when it cant find the server.

Regards,
John.

You need to modify the /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-core.repo file and change the baseurl parameter to:

Code:
baseurl=file:///media/cdrom/
