How anaconda recognizes iso images of self-created installation disks(1,2,3)

Description of problem: (forgive me if this goes to the wrong question
I can't find information how anaconda recognizes packages burned on
different installation disks ( created by myself ). Specifically, I copy rpms
packages from a ftp site and burned them onto 3 different CDs following the
outlined configuration of directories and files in the manual, the first of
which also has the isolinux.iso file made too by mkisofs.
The first CD should automatically boot the anaconda installation program,
but then how does it recognizes different packages burned among 3 CDs? It asks
me for the 2nd CD while the package needed is in the 3rd CD. Is there a way to
tell anaconda the list of packages burned on each CD? ( Does it have anything
to do with TRANS.TLB file in each subdirectory ? )
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Following the outlined configuration of directories and files of each CD,
and make an iso image for booting from CD #1, and burn all necessary rpm files
on those 3 CDs.
2. Boot from the CD #1 and run in graphical mode of upgrade
3. It asks for CD#2 but the package needed is in the CD#3
Expected results: Self-created CDs should work the same as Boxed-CDs.
Additional info: I am trying to upgrade from Redhat8 to Redhat9 due to
problems in gnome-volume-control bug in Redhat8, which was fixed in Redhat9 as
told by some technician. The bug was that gnome-volume-control causes
Unresolved Symbols when I used Alsa Sound Package for my Intel810 sound
