I'm sorry I didn't notice this thread earlier.
Let me offer complete examples all in one email:
You can mount an .iso file using the method indicated below by Mr. Marcano.
Then you install RPM's from it by hand like this:
rpm -ivh --aid
rpm -ivh --aid /mnt/cdrom/Fedora/RPMS/gee_whiz_application*
If RPM complains that the gee_whiz_application is already installed you
rpm -Uvh --aid /mnt/cdrom/Fedora/RPMS/gee_whiz_application*
which upgrades an older package to a newer one
rpm -Fvh --aid /mnt/cdrom/Fedora/RPMS/gee_whiz_application*
which is similar.
So you have to point rpm to the new package you want to install just
like you point an arrow at its target.

Mount the iso in a loop device
mount -o loop file.iso /pathtomount
then install the RPMs by hand
