RedHat package manager.

If you are in X try


it will help you see what you have left to install on the cd and check for dependencies. It should come up when the cd is inserted if you are using automount.

Or you can run the setup again and select upgrade.

I would just use gnorpm though, you can query the rpms to see what they do and decide if you want them.
