Just skim through each of the CDs, there should be a whole bunch of rpm files in a specific folder in each of them. Just click on the one you want to install, it will ask for the root password. Give it, and it should install the software.
Btw, if there's any dependencies for your application, it will list them in an error window. Note those down and install them first, then your app should install.

Under the Application menu, within System Tool you will find a tool called Add/Remove Software (or something similar in translation if you have some localized system). It will allow you to choose and display all packages that make up the distribution. This way can install any missing packages.

And there's an edit option so you can tell it to use the CDs as a repo, instead of going over the net if your net cxn has a problem
