for what it is worth I started using YUM to update my machines at work. I 
rsync the directories I need from the mirror closest to me then let YUM 
do the updates. I use RHN to notify me of new packages then let YUM update 
the systems. YUM still checks the GPG signatures and if one of the 
signatures fail I delete the file from the server and rsync it again. 
YUM is really excellent for RH updates as well as non-RH updates, but this is 
going OT now. sorry
