A) Downlaod the ISO of RHEL3 U7 from RHN

B) Mount the ISOs in a local directory on the system, for instance:

# mount iso_filename /mnt/ISO -o loop

C) Copy all the RPMs from the /mnt/ISO/RedHat/RPMS to /var/spool/up2date directory, for instance:

# cp /mnt/ISO/RedHat/RPMS/*.rpm /var/spool/up2date

D) Repeat the steps A and B for the remaining ISOs.

E) Edit the file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources, comment the line:

# up2date default

Uncomment and modify the last line to look similar as:
dir my-favorite-rpms-i386-9 /var/spool/up2date/ and save the file.

F) Now, up2date the system  which will receive all the updates from the '/var/spool/up2date' directory.

# up2date -u

This would update your system to where U7 began. Out of curiosity, is
it possible to also acquire and install all the subsequent pre-U8
errata and updates that Red Hat released after the U7 ISOs were
released?
