You can giv priorities to the installation sources to let YaST use the 
DVD first.

There only about halfe of the packages on DVD, to test all the 
dependencies against the DVD provided packages would cost a lot of 
time. To make all this packages available in the packman repository 
would mean, we have to look for security updates and cost a lot of 
diskspace. I don't think it's usefull to make this double.
