Method to upgrade from live install to DVD install package setup?

I installed Fedora 13 from the live CD and have found many packages 
missing that would be installed with the normal process from the DVD 

Normally, I do use the DVD and do a preupgrade on one test machine and a 
clean install on another and usually use the clean install setup after figuring 
all the differences. 

In this case, I am 17 timezones behind my normal location (GMT+10 to 
GMT-7), so don't have the access to systems I normally do. 

So, far I've installed the OpenOffice, Samba to get printing to a windows box, 
and found that ftp wasn't install by default?

Only solution might be to reinstall from a DVD image, but that means doing 
all the updates again.
