How to install packages from Fedora DVD (without net)

Hello friends,
I have FC9 and I want to install additional packages from the Fedora DVD. The problem is that I don't have net connectivity. How can one do this ?

Using rpm would be very cumborsome since it would fail because of dependencies. One method is to note down all the dependencies, and install them with rpm. This may again give a list of dependencies. This obviously is not the best solution.

Something like yum is required which would automatically install the dependecnies also. But for yum to work you require a working (and high speed) net connectivity.

So friends, is there any better way of doing this.

Any help ?

Thanks in advance.
