Rip all the RPM files from the DVD.  Then share that directory on NFS 
and install from that.  Leave out the problematic RPMs from the directory.

I used to do network installs from an NFS server just this way.  I had 
several different distributions/versions shared on the NFS server.  You 
could install any one of the shared distros that you wanted.
