You need to feed the rpm command the file name and where it is located. It isn't aware of CD's and things like that.
I would suggest you start with CD 1 and look at the RPM packages in that CD and continue with each CD until you find the one that has it. All the rpm packages are in the one folder on each CD - called SERVER I believe. You can't miss it because it has nothing but a lot of *.rpm files.

Once you find and install the createrepo package, what I usually do is copy down all the RPM files from each CD into the 1 location on your HDD and then using createrepo you can create you own repo for YUM.
