extract the iso image, and put the RPMS in a folder on a partition. While installation you can tell the installer the path for the RPMS directory

Hi :)

what are the steps? i created a boot floppy using the cdrom image. the floppy boots me into the installation screen. and there i started the standard installation. (which installation method i need to select here? ). then it shows a screen that displays my two CD drives and asks to select which is the source. no options there to set the path. Then how can i set the path to the RPMs.
in Fedora i used the linux askmethod installtion and it showed me an option to set the path to the ISOs. but here i couldnt find an option. HELP!
