Location of installation media


Hi,

I'm trying to use the "add/remove applications" application in the Fedora Core 2 gui to add in a bunch of packages I would like. When I try to do it I get a message saying "insert fedora core 2 disk 1" but I did a network install from an ftp server when I installed it. How can I get it to install these new packages over the network as well?

thanks

in fedora core 2, i know that if you execute the package manager from the command line (not sure about, cause i dont use fedora), you can put in -t=ftp://username@ftpaddress.com/Fedora

and get the package manager to work from there
