It appears that existing media sources can be enabled or can be disabled
in the GUI by marking the check boxes or unmarking the check boxes. In
my Fedora 11 it does not show a CD or DVD source. You would have to add
them, as in the example that I pointed to earlier, yourself. From what I
read it works. I can not really confirm that because I have not done
that. Nor will I because it is not what I want.

Similar to yumex.
