from /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Media.repo

# CentOS-Media.repo
# This repo is used to mount the default locations for a CDROM / DVD on
#  CentOS-5.  You can use this repo and yum to install items directly off the
#  DVD ISO that we release.
# To use this repo, put in your DVD and use it with the other repos too:
#  yum --enablerepo=c5-media [command]
# or for ONLY the media repo, do this:
#  yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c5-media [command]
