The tool expects the install tree to be in the same format as you
would setup an install tree for Anaconda to do a network based install.

eg, you basically want to replicate the structure seen under the primary
   download site for a Fedora distribution. eg FC6 x86_64:

Given the CDs, you need to copy the contents of all 5 CDs into a single
merged directory tree - to make a structure that looks same as the one
at the above URL. If you have the DVD image then its even simpler - there
is no multiple-disk merge - just export the contents of the DVD via NFS
or HTTP.
