You don't have internet access? In case you're behind a proxy, you can fix that by editing /etc/yum.conf and adding proxy server and credentials, like this:

proxy=http://pro.xy.com:port
proxy_username=your proxy username
proxy_password=your proxy password

In baseurl, you have to give path of directory that has the xml file.  Look for repomd.xml.  Give path of directory that contains this file.

You can also put the files you want to install in  
/var/cache/yum/[$basearch]/[$releasever]/[reponame]/
and run
# yum -C install (or groupinstall) [package or group names to install]

The -C (note upper-case) makes it operate only from cache and not try to go online to update its database files.

You might want to set keepcache=1 in  /etc/yum.conf so it doesn't delete the packages as soon as it's done installing them, too.

You can create a local Yum Repository by copying all the content of DVD to your local system drive. For more information and steps to create local Yum repository on your system please check URL: http://eitwebguru.com/how-to-create-local-yum-repository/
