how to yum repository


hi all

i configured NFS server and isntalled all 5 linux CD as iso images on the server.

on the client side, i am able to install operating system. but now want to install some packages.

my question is how will i configure yum repository on the client side when my server is having .iso images of OS.

am i supposed to install flat files of all 5 CD's in the NFS server. flat files means just copying CD files to share directory.

thank you once again

You could mount the ISO images through a loop device to a mount point.
Code:
mount -o loop /disk1.iso /mnt/disk1
