Unhappy installing software using iso images


hi guys,
of late I setup redhat-9 using isos i had stored on my vfat partion.
Now the problem is instaling additional packages using the redhat-config-packages utility. The utility keeps telling me to insert disc1 into my cdrom. I tried installing the software after i had mounted the iso with the -o loop option but it is too laborious. Is there a way I can still use the redhat-config-pakages utility with my isos ?
thanks

How about
Code:
select CDROM in quit 1 2 3 4 5; do
 case "$CDROM" in
  quit) break;;
  *) [insert losetup -d or umount command && loopmount command iso-name-${CDROM}.iso here];;
 esac
done
