Suse Linux 9.1 installation on PCs of the same network


I want to install some Suse 9.1 packages from an ftp mirror, on two PCs connected to router. I can easily download the packages via ftp (yast) and install them on the first PC and next download again the packages and install them on the second PC. However, there must be an easier way; does anybody know if the downloaded rpms can be found on my first PC (maybe in a temporary folder), in order not to download them again?

They are too many. I could write them in a DVD, but i don't have a DVD-Writer.
