Offline Installation?

Is it possible to install
1) Livna's Packages (specially the ATI driver)
2) ATI-Driverupdates which are downloaded 2 secs after downloading the 'original' driver
3) kernel-Updates

offline in Texmode from a CD? (!!!)

Textmode is very important coz after installing Fedora 8 my display turns black when there should be a logon-screen

What about hitting Ctrl+Alt+F1, does that take you to a login command line? Cause if you can get to the command line, then you can use rpm to install them.

ie: rpm -ivh xxxxxx.rpm

I didn't try Ctrl+Alt+F1 ... coz I don't kow abot this ... I'm a newbie
I get into textmode through grub, changing the command to 'quiet 3' after booting I have to login as root and then can type commands.

You can download the rpm to a local server and install it from there.

These are all valid options.

rpm -ivh ftp://localserver/path/to/file.rpm
rpm -ivh http://localserver/path/to/file.rpm
rpm -ivh /local/path/to/file.rpm

Thank you ... but there is another problem .... how to access the CD in textmode???
when I started Linux in normal mode (GU) and type into the console
Code:
cd /media
cd thenameofthecd
dir
I get the full filelist

If I type the same in Textmode, it complains, that 'thenameofthecd' was not found (coz /media is empty by the way)
