How to change installation Source for Red Hat Enterprise


I've done some searching but i just cant find the right answer so sorry for this question but:

How can I change the installation source in red hat enterprise?

I'm using gnome and trying to add a new program using the add/remove package manager.. Though it keeps asking me for the cdrom, wich i dont have at the moment.. How can i force this client to use a ftp server?

I know i could download the packages by hand but i just want this to work

IN RHEL3 add/remove packages runs redhat-config-packages (system-config-packages in RHEL4)
You can run it from the command line and pass --tree=path-to-your-install-tree
