Just create 2 channels with cadmin with the correct release string for
each channel.

Yes. See my previous post regarding nrh-mirror-updates. Just use cadmin to
create the channels, as described in the current guide. The tricky part is
getting the correct release string. For rhel 3 and rhel 4 it is 3ES and
4ES (thank you Jack!). I'm not sure about 2.1, but do an `rpm -q
redhat-release' and use the field right after redhat-release in the
package version.


Hth,

Trevor
