If you search on google for "fedora+yum+dvd+repo", you will find some articles that deal with using the dvd source as an installation repository. Unfortunately I have never tried this so can't recommend a specific article.

Perhaps this will help ->

Scroll near the bottom and it explains how to configure your DVD as a repository. Add/Remove uses the application PIRUT to install/remove software which in turn reads /etc/yum.repos.d/ or /etc/yum.conf wherever you have your repositories defined

I'm trying to make this work. Shocked that this is as difficult as it is.

I tried this how-to and it did not work.

Error parsing 'file:///media/Fedora 11 x86_64 DVD/': URL must be http, ftp, file or https not ""

^Where is the DVD mounting?

The following repo file works for me when I mount Fedora iso at /media/repo/
