I maintain four Linux boxes in rural Central Florida, one box runs FC4 the other three FC3. Internet access is 56K. The phone company Sprint gives no hope for DSL. To save time I download the updates burn them to CD and then install from the CD to the boxes (openoffice.org-core alone took 19 hours to download). Can yum be configured to use the CD as a repository? Yum fails with updates lasting more than five hours because of the isp 5 hour connect time limitation. Downloading from the Internet with yum for each machine triples the time.
Thanks,
Manny

If you downloaded the updates, can't you just:

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
rm -ivh /mnt/cdrom/*.rpm

Thanks to all for your interest. I found an excellent article by David Murphy at Linux.com "How to run your own yum repository" detailing what is needed. If you are interested it is at: http://servers.linux.com/servers/04/07/22/...9&tid=23&tid=42
Thanks again,
Manny
