Are the dependencies going to be on the CD? If so, then you will
have to use something like mkrepo (sp) to include repo data on the
CD, and have something like this in your repo list:

[CD]
name=Fedora-CD $releasever - $basearch
failovermethod=priority
baseurl=file:///mnt/cdrom
enabled=1

If the dependencies are somewhere else, you can use
"yum localinstall <package>
