add / remove applications with .iso


I'm trying to use the "package manager" program in Fedora Core 4. When I choose to install a new package it asks for the "Fedora Core Disk 1". Is there a way to install the packages from the iso's on my harddisk instead?

I did install the operating system from these harddisk-located ISO's after all just to avoid having to burn them on CD's...

And what's the name of the "package manager" program so that I can check it out? Maybe run it from a shell etc?
