Unhappy RPM Keys and rpmdrake?

How do I configure different CDs in rpmdrake? I'm trying to get some games off different CDs, but I seem to never be able to configure it right. How do i do this?

This thing's PISSING ME OFF!!!

Try using urpmi:

urpmi name of rpm package
It should ask for the correct CD to be mounted.
