I have recently installed Fedora Core 5 in my system.I bought it from a online vendor and I got 6 CD's. When I try to use ADD\REMOVE SOFTWARE I get the following error.

Unable to retrieve system information.

I get the same error when I try yum.Please help me.I'm unable to install the softwares that came with the 3 and 4th cd.

Yum and "Add/Remove Software" get the software from repositories on the Internet, not CDs. If you don't have an Internet connection, followthis guide (http://www.city-fan.org/tips/YumRepoFromImages) for setting up a local repository.
