using current to distribute packages from RHN

Message Hi,

This question was introduced in a different thread, but I have an
additional wrinkle, so I'll pose it separately.

I have several linux boxes (17) that run RHEL3, all of which have valid
subscriptions. I have 2 other servers that run RHAS2.1, both of which
have valid subscriptions. I'd like to use current to handle the
necessary patching for these servers, but I'm not sure how to go about
it.

I realize I can use up2date to download packages from RHN from one
machine. I could probably even reconfigure that machine so it carries
every available package, so I can download all package updates as they
become available. What I'm curious about is 1) how do I then integrate
these downloaded packages for use by current, and 2) is it possible to
make one system download packages from RHN for an OS not installed on
that system? In other words, could I designate a RHEL3 machine to
download all packages for RHEL3 via RHN, *and* download all packages for
RHAS2.1 via RHN, from the same system?

Thanks,


drew
