In CentOS 6 DVD (there are 2 DVDs), you will find Packages directory which contains the rpm files.

If your system does not have yum installed by default (which is weird), you have to go through the pain of installing it using the rpm command (don't tell me that too does not work!) after installing all dependencies.

Once you have yum, you can use your DVDs as the local yum repository by adding a file named local.repo (or any name with the .repo extension) in /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory with the following contents:

name=Local Repository

...and you can install the packages using yum now.
