How to install applications from cd-s on FC5?


I just installed Fedora Core 5 and at the installation I selected that option that installs only some needed applications (I thought I will install everything after the install). I tried to select from the menu Applications -> Add/Remove software, I selected my desired applications but I noticed it tries to download them from the internet, and I have a very slow internet connection. Do you know how do I install them from cd-s? Thank you.

Go back to the Applications menu and look for an option to Change Source of Installation, or something like that. It will allow you to add the CD drive as a source of packages to install.

It really doesn't have an option that would allow me to modify the source of the installation... If anyone knows how to do this, I would be a very happy man Thank you.
