How do you update from an FC1 Updates CD?

I have a current Fedora Core 1 Updates CD.

This CD has all the current FC1 rpms updates on it. How can I use a GUI type program to look at this CD and preform the updates? Can you tell Up2date, Yum or Apt-Get to look at the CD for the updates?

Using RedHat "up2date".

Edit "sources" file located at:


Then run up2date agent.

sources file:

### Originaly first two lines were active. tktim
#yum fedora-core-1
#yum updates-released
#yum updates-testing

### tktim added this line for use with CD updates
dir fedora-core-1 /mnt/cdrom1/i386

# or ### = a comment

must start with "dir"
then any label such as "fedora-core-1"
then directory location such as "/mnt/cdrom1/i386"

Change back when done. Comment out lines using # no longer needed and uncomment (remove #) lines needed again.

Once I did above everthing worked perfectly.
