I don't think you can do that.  You first have to mount the .iso images,
and copy the files out of them into your http server.

If I recall correctly, after you've mounted disc 1, you will need to
copy the whole file structure to your webserver's /redhat directory.

For the other CDs you just need to copy all of the .rpm files from the
iso image's /RedHat/RPMS directory into the /redhat/RedHat/RPMS
directory of your web server.

If your web server is another linux box, you can mount the images with
somthing similar to this:

# mkdir /mnt/iso
# mount -o loop -t iso9660 psyche-i386-disc1.iso /mnt/iso

Then:

# cd /mnt/iso
# cp -av * /path-to-document-root/redhat

Then:

# cd; umount /mnt/iso
# mount -o loop -t iso9660 psyche-i386-disc2.iso /mnt/iso
# cd /mnt/iso/RedHat/RPMS
# cp * //path-to-document-root/redhat/RedHat/RPMS

Then do the same for CD 3.
