Just feed the list of packages to URPMI, like such: "urpmi *.rpm" or whatever 
is appropriate for your paths to RPMS. Before installing, both URPMI and RPM 
will look at all packages found, in order to calculate the dependencies anyway, 
so order isn't so important. If something is missing, you'll know about it 
right off, that's for sure.

If you are using the MDK mono packages off the MDK club, they <should> have all 
you need. Don't take my word for it though, as I'm always compiling my stuff 
from source.
