It is going to depend on the flavor of Linux you are running. It could be one of several different applications available to load updates. If it is a red-hat distribution you can probably find out which one is installed by check the man pages for rpm. If nothing else Google the OS and 'update package' (ie. Centos 4 update package) and you will find out what is available.
