And now you have lost me completely, even the word makes sense now.

when you setup an install source for yast, you can use yast to copy the cd content to the same directory, but you also can just copy the content of any and all the cd on the same directory under subdirectories disk1, disk2...

the result is:
/101/ (for example)

if, when you install, with any boot disk or disk1, you direct yast to the hard drive, disk1, it can find all the others disks

obviously yast looks for the name given in archive.gz for the rpm searched to know on what disk it is.

a dvd is essentially a drive, so copying the same tree to a dvd could work, given the archive.gz is properly updated
