Just copy the RPM or tar.gz file from the cd onto your hard drive and install that way?

If you provide more details of what your trying to do, might be more helpful as what your asking really doesn't make any sense.

thankyou trickykid

The thing which you are saying is absolutely alright, but i have used redhat 6.1 and 6.2 and 7.3, each of them had a RPM application to install new softwares directly from the cd. i am finding the redhat 9.0 a little tricky to understand.. for example if i download a video player from the net for linux, how do i install it.. please tell
