Lightbulb Pirut on Fedora 8 (i386). Making DVD repos.

Can anyone tell me how to make createrepo "remember" all my packages from my DVD's. I would like to use pirut to select what I want, and then to have pirut ask me to insert the needed dvd's, get the rpm's and install... I'm thinking of what urpmi and drakrpm on mandriva (mandrake) did. Can pirut work like that? I burned each dvd with rpm's, included the repodata dir with createrepo for that dvd, and included a media.repo file like the one on the Fedora 8 DVD. But pirut keeps on asking to insert that dvd (the yum dir in /etc/ has a file describing my dvd's - I took the example from the Fedora 8 installation file in the same dir). Someting is wrong, please help - and include examples. Thanks
