Reinstalling yum downloaded files


After a new install I'm trying to use the 'old' yum downloads to save time downloading on my slow connection. My first attempt was:
Code:
[root@localhost linmix]# yum -c update a*
Config Error: Error accessing file for config file:///home/linmix/update
So I did yum check-update to refresh any info I might have but that didn't work.
I've also tried using rpm but I run into complicated dependancy issues which yum always resolved fine. How can I use my already downloaded files to update my system?

also I don't understand why yum looks into my /home/linmix folder and tells me it can't find updates for my files there??
Code:
Could not find update match for custom_nvidia.html
Could not find update match for chbg-0.7-1.i386.rpm
Could not find update match for chapter28.sxw

if you're running anything in bash, a wildcard like * will be processed by bash and NOT the program, so the * there will be expanded to include all files in that directory
