Is there an interactive installation program for this... similar or identical to the graphical one you get during a fresh DVD install?

For example, in Legacy Fonts package group, I would like to be able to select the ones I want.
You seem to be asking for 2 things - to use an install program instead of the command-line for adding more apps, and also to do a local install from your dvd, which contains the original release files, instead of downloading the latest updates.
For the install program you can use f16's Add/Remove Software, or you could download Yumex.
For a local install you can create a local repo as follows:
load install dvd
mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/local_repo
cp /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/install_dvd.repo
In the Fedora section
- title: change to dvd_repo
- add 'install dvd' to end of name
- change baseurl to baseurl=file:///mnt/local_repo/
- comment out mirror list
- retain enabled=1 etc
- delete debuginfo and source sections
save & exit
goto Software Settings / Software Sources tab - turn on local_repo, turn off everything else
run Add/Remove Software or Yumex
in Software Sources window, turn off local_repo, turn on Fedora and Updates
