How to install Packages from Fedora installation disk

i have made a fresh install of fedora 7 by x86 dvd. i chose to customise during installation and removed some packages. but i want to install kde, compilers and lot of packages which amount to large volume, as my internet is limited volume i don't want to waste the bandwidth in installing the packages as these are available in my installatin disk itself. please tell me how to add path to dvd-rom and install from it through add-remove programme tool.

Create a new file in /etc/yum.repos.d (I'll call it dvd.repo), and put:
name=Local dvd
in it. You may have to change /media/dvd to the directory which contains 'media.repo' on the mounted DVD.

Change 'enabled=1' to 'enabled=0' in all the other files in /etc/yum.repos.d to stop yum trying the Internet repositories, and you should be good to go.
