Wasn't there an option when you installed to add additional software from cd?? Surely wouldn't that be how you do it, or is that just on FC4. Alternatively you could install the updates manually, it'll tell you what the missing dependancies are and you can then install them. I can't see there being a way to make yum think that your cd drive is a yum repo, but i may be wrong. Regards,

When all else fails, read the instructions.

Or in this case, the yum man page.

# yum localupdate rpmfile1 [rpmfile2] [...]
