Change the Source for mdk's Rpm manager?

hey guys. im kinda lazy and hate downloading and burning all 4 CD isos, but then again the Net install doesnt work worth a darn for me anymore either.

I did get mdk 10 to FTP install once, and it was nice. Took long but i dont care. Normally i just download the First CD and install ...ignore its requests for CD 2-4...then install what i can later manually. RPM drake asks for the other 4 CDs. Well i know in gentoo and debian you can point the source for emerge and apt get to different FTP servers, so there must be a way to make RPM drake look thru FTP servers rather CDs right?

The answer is EasyUrpmi. It has very straightforward instructions for adding/changing sources.
