I am trying to install the Gnome Desktop Environment on a RHEL 5 system. I am NOT connected to the internet and do NOT have any local repo or the install disks.

Under normal circumstances, where a repo is available, I understand the easiest way to do this would be to:

# yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

But since I don't have access to a repo, I will need to download all the individual RPMs that make up this groupinstall.

So my question is, how do I find out what RPMs get installed with the "GNOME Desktop Environment" groupinstall so I know what RPMs I need to download?

EDIT: So I can download the entire distro on a DVD and use the DVD as a repo, but let's say I don't have a CD/DVD drive and need to download the RPMs individually.
