FC4: Creating updates DVD as yum repository



Hi,
 
I'll start with my question, which is 'Is it possible to prepare a DVD-based yum repository containing the downloaded FC4 updates'.
 
I've included some more stuff below in case you are interested why I would want to and what I have tried so far...
 
I am preparing a standalone platform (no internet) with FC4.
 
Having installed from DVD I want to apply the latest updates.
 
I have taken the following approach:
1. Download all updates.
2. Remove old kernel packages from download.
3. Remove i386 packages that are covered by an equivalent i686 package.
4. Burn RPMs to DVD.
 
I have attempted installation as follows:
- Login as root.
- $ rpm -Fvh /media/cdrecorder/*.rpm
 
RPMs begin to be installed but eventually it falls over - can't remember exact error. Anyway I can then individually install the RPM that fell over without error, perhaps satisfying its dependencies at the! same time. I can continue with this cycle of error/fix/continue and would probably eventually get everything updated - but this is not a viable approach.
 
Hence, my question - How can I prepare a yum repository on a DVD containing the download updates? Or, is there another way of acheiving my goal of installing the updates easily.
 
Any help or advice is much appreciated.
 
Thanks,
Richard.
