Mount the iso to /mnt

In the case of redhat, copy the media.repo file from the root dir of the mount point to /etc/yum.repos.d.  Edit the file and add the baseurl at the end as depicted below.

[root@mkoffer2 ~]# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/media.repo
[InstallMedia]
name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3
mediaid=1339640147.274118
metadata_expire=-1
gpgcheck=0
cost=500
baseurl=file:///mnt

* mediaid comes from the .diskinfo file located in the root of the DVD

This will allow installation of base packages.  If you need non-base packages, you'll need to include the correct stanza in the media.repo config file.
