Question Install Patches on Offline System

I am a bit of a novice linux user, I have a fresh Red Hat Enterprise 4 system not connected to the internet, I want to deploy the patches to that machine. I have another fresh RH Enterprise 4 system connected to the internet which I used up2date to download all of the patches. I am curious as to if there is a way for me to take these patches and install them onto the offline box without installing each individual package one at a time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In the directory with the patches, just run:

rpm -Uvh *.rpm

If you have missing dependencies, you will need to bring those over as well.
