Install from hard disk with ISO

I have downloaded all 6 iso images for the 10.1 powerpack and I want to do an install from my hard drive. Should I unpack all of them and put them into one directory so it is like the DVD, or should I leave them all in ISO form. I tried it once yesterday, but when I left it all in ISO form, I didn't have the option to install any of the packages that I know are on the other disks. I could only install what was from the first disk. And then for some reason, when I tried to add the iso images as sources for installing software, the software manager says that it can't read from those sources. If I do unpack all the disks into one directory, how should I set up my file tree?
I am an extreme linux newbie.
