Question Keeping rpm updates


I have two installs of Mandrake9.1 on this machine, and the first one has quite a few updated rpms installed, which I'd like to install on the second without having to download them again.
However, the only place I seem to find any trace of the downloaded rpm packages is in /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/, where a few reside, possibly from incomplete downloads.
If they have been deleted after use, is there any way to recreate them without the source code or .src.rpm? Or is it more downloading at 56K?

I think you would be best to download then again - for future though you can run:
up2date-config

and set "Keep after install" to "Yes".

Command not found.
I think Mandrake uses it's rpmdrake/urpmi so I'll try hunting for such an option, or download the suggested rpms seperately so the updater doesnt delete them.
