As others have mentioned, InstantMirror would probably work well for this:

https://hosted.fedoraproject.org/InstantMirror/wiki

I have been using it for about three weeks now or so on a home network
with three machines active taking advantage of it and various test
installs and such using it when they are built up.  It was pretty easy
to setup and once one machine updates, the other machines will just
grab it from the local repo.  It has made updates here for subsequent
machines much, much faster.  And when I rebuilt a laptop here with
Fedora 8 on it, the post install update process was less painful than
if I had to pull the updates from the web.
