The packages that we're not found are dependencies for the packages you are trying to install. Install them first...and welcome to RPM hell

RPM hell is me being a smartass

RPM doesn't take care of dependencies itself so if you are trying to install something that depends on something else that isn't installed you have to install it manually. Sometimes that dependency has dependencies itself. This is why tools like YUM were created: to take care of dependencies and tracking down packages..

All the packages you need should be on your DVD, if not you will have to hunt them down from an RPM repository. In your screenshot you can see what packages are required before you can continue...

Use YUM or APT/SYNAPTIC, so that any dependencies are automatically resolved. The default Redhat/Fedora package management GUI is not very good in my opinion.
