Erm, yes it is:

localinstall
Is used to install a set of local rpm files. If required the
enabled repositories will be used to resolve dependencies.

Erm, yes there is:

localupdate
Is used to update the system by specifying local rpm files.
Only the specified rpm files of which an older version is
already installed will be installed, the remaining specified
packages will be ignored. If required the enabled
repositories will be used to resolve dependencies.

(both from "man yum" on up to date FC4 (yum-2.4.1-1.fc4))

Ah, but I have version 2.3.2-7 of yum - that which came originally with FC4. The man page mentions neither localinstall or localupdate. The usage statement does at least mention localinstall, (but not localupdate).
 
Despite this I have run with localupdate which does seem to be recognised, however I have some dependency problems. I shall investigate further tomorrow.
 
Richard.
