Question Multiple installs


I recently bought an issue of Linux Format magazine and each issues comes up with a DVD full of applications I can install.
One of the applications is the latest version of KDE. It's broken down into a dozen or so RPM's.

Is there a way for me to install all the RPM's at once or do I have to run the RPM's one at a time?

There is no INSTALL or README for the KDE RPM's.

Any advice?

P.S. I'm running Fedora Core 1.

rpm -ivh /path/to/rpms/*

That will install all rpms in /path/to/rpms/

Thanks for the help.
It didn't work at first so I copied the files to my hard drive in a temp file and it seemed to work. I got some dependency errors. So I guess I have to track down the missing files.

Is having to copy the files to the hard drive something that normally occurs or was it supposed to run from the cdrom and maybe it's something I did wrong?
(So that I know for future reference)

These are the errors I got:
error: Failed dependencies:
qt >= 1:3.2.3 is needed by kdeartwork-3.2.0-0.1
qt >= 1:3.2.3 is needed by kdeedu-3.2.0-0.1
qt >= 1:3.2.3 is needed by kdelibs-3.2.0-0.1
qt-devel >= 1:3.2.3 is needed by kdelibs-devel-3.2.0-0.1
qt-designer >= 1:3.2.3 is needed by kdevelop-3.0.0-0.1
/usr/lib/qt-3.2 is needed by redhat-artwork-0.90-0.1

I ckecked the version of Qt I was using and it said it was 3.1.2 so I am assuming I need to upgrade. I checled the trolltech website and they said I should uninstall the old version before I install the new or I will get errors.
If I remember correctly that means running

$ rpm -e qt

Does this sound right?

Sorry for being such a noob.

EDIT: I tried that but I got
libqt-mt.so.3 is needed by (installed) qt-devel-3.1.2-14
libqt-mt.so.3 is needed by (installed) PyQt-3.8.1-2
libqt-mt.so.3 is needed by (installed) sip-3.8-1

etc. etc. and so on.
Should I just go ahead and try to install the new qt?
Any guesses anyone?

You can upgrade qt with:
rpm -U /path/to/qt.rpm

That should solve the qt problem. I can't see why it wouldn't work from the CD but if it works by copying then so be it. Did it give you any particular error?

Here's the error it gave me when trying to run the rpm's from the DVD
error: open of 899a51d573935a0c06d728f03705a813 failed: No such file or directory
error: open of arts-1.2.0-0.1.i386.rpm failed: No such file or directory

The rpm-U /path/to/qt.rpm command
I'm assuming this is the path to the newer RPM and not the older one?

Yes that's correct.

I'm not sure where the error is coming from, sorry.
