for mounting DVD
"mount /dev/dvd  /mnt "(this is optional u can also mount this in /media as u wish)
goto the location ..and see ur contents

for creating yum
1. u must copy the packages to the location /var/ftp/pub/Server.. where the dir Server is created by u
2.copy the comps.xml package from the cd to /opt
3.after copying the packages to the location  use this command
createrepo -g /opt/compsfile  -v /var/ftp/pub/Server
4 It shows u that it has finished successfully
5.give the location in yum i.e vim /etc/yum.repos.d/rhel-debiginfo
6 in the base url give the loc as ftp://pub/Server
