Unhappy How do your disable mirror sources in RPMDrake update

How do you disable Internet updating if you just want to update from a set of installation CDs? I have looked at the sources but the default mirror must be buried in the bowels of RPMdrake.

My reason for asking is that (a) I don't want to impose on the tolerance of the sys admin at work re large downloads for Computer 1 (see signature) and (b) at home I only have dial-up, so monopolizing the telephone for 72 hours straight won't make me popular with my family.

Also, I have purchased an errata disk for Mandrake 9.2 which I have added to sources. But RPMdrake won't recognize or use it to update. What gives?

May the Tux be with you.

Go to software media manager, and then add a source. You may want to delete the old update source first, but I don't guarantee it will work, just something to try. Choose update source tab and under the url type the location of the updates(e.g /mnt/cdrom/Updates/RPMs) and find aout where the hdlist is on the cd.
