Ralph,

Ok part of my problem was I was mounting the DVD under /mnt/cdrom 
instead of /media/cdrom.

yum repolist gives
yum repolist
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
repo id              repo name                                 status
addons               CentOS-5 - Addons                         enabled
base                 CentOS-5 - Base                           enabled
extras               CentOS-5 - Extras                         enabled
updates              CentOS-5 - Updates                        enabled

however when I do the "yum grouplist"
its still trying to do the network yum not MEDIA repo and I get errors.

I am still missing something.

Thanks,
Jerry
