[root@zeus Software]# yum install AdobeReader_enu-7.0.9-1.i386.rpm
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Could not retrieve mirrorlist error was
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base

See "man yum" in particular you are looking for "localinstall" for installing rpms you have already downloaded.
