Question update centos from a folder using add remove application

Is it possible to install some Linux package from HDD using add/remove application?
I copied all Linux RPM folder to my hard, when I want to install some package using add/remove application,this message appeared:
Insert CD1.
How could I change this setting to read package from hard disk? (Like /mnt/resource)

If you already have rpms on your hard drive why bother using the add remove application. Use the terminal to install the rpms you want to by rpm -ivh <package>.
