Assuming little change since Fed 9, two ways I can think of off the top of my head are:

Browse to your DVD and go to the Packages directory. Double click on the desired package and act on the prompts to install. Else,

Go to Add/Remove Software. From there, click on System->Software Sources, and uncheck everything but Fedora xxx (your dvd). Any software you add will be from your DVD.

Of course, I'm also assuming that you're in a gui like KDE or GNOME.

Good luck.

Why? Because my employer and my clients are gastroenterologists.
