Message To answer #2... I've given this some thought in the
past as well. Because up2date compares your current
rpm database to the channel you are subscribed to, it
would seem you would have to maintain 2 seperate rpm
databases to get this to work... that is, if you
wanted to fetch the updates from RHN as it seems you
do. This wasn't such a big deal on previous versions
of RH since you could download the packages from a
redhat mirror to fetch packages for all sorts of
releases. So my first thought would be "No" this
couldn't work by using up2date and RHN. Someone may
have a different opinion or know of a piece of
software that can handle this.

How about allowing one of the RHAS2.1 machines up2date
themselves, downloading the packages, and rsync them
to your up2date / Current server?
