Quoting from the above link.

"hjttp://katzj.livejournal.com/380795.html - Pirut does not support
installing packages from media out of the box. This is a planned
feature. Look at http://www.city-fan.org/tips/YumRepoFromImages for a
way to do this currently."


After reading the link, I now understand that Pirut (not sure how I would have know this ) is the name of the GUI front end for yum.

While it have been planned, it does and will cause a lot of problems for people on isolated networks. I think this should be highlighted in the Wiki.
