Get the yum-updatesd from Fedora 8 test version. It will work to do
the auto downloads. I'm       using it.


$ rpm -q yum-updatesd
yum-updatesd-0.4-1.fc8

Assuming you turn on the auto updates in the config file.  By default,
it does not install things.

Believe me, this will work.  I was one of the complainers here about
yum-updatesd for quite a while
