RE: New to Linux

Thank you. I was able to install createrepo.noarch off of the cd.

'createrepo' is part of the 'createrepo' package.  If you need to
install software off of your DVD, you can do so manually with rpm.  Or,
if you want to use yum:

  1. Insert your DVD into your DVD drive.
  2. Run df to see where the DVD mountd (should be /media/something)
  3. Create a file /etc/yum.repos/rhel-media.repo file with the
     following contents:

        name=RHEL-$releasever - Media

     Set baseurl to the path you found in step #2 with /Server/ on the
     end as in the example.

  4. Run the following command to install your software:

       # yum --enablerepo=rhel5-media install createrepo

Untested, but I believe should work...
