Can not access disk when install software

I have a DVD-ROM and CD-RW both installed and working. When i try and install software or packages it says to insert Fedora Core 4 Disc 3 or so. I insert the disc in a drive and i can access it in my computer. However the install package wont access the drive. Is there awork around so i can install my software without cds?

Sounds like you need to configure the package manager to tell it where to look: i.e., the cd/dvd drive.
