Create new install disc with updated packages
I've got a 3 or 4 machines I'd like to install Centos (or some other distro) on, but I'm stuck with slow internet connections. I have some Centos discs, and I would like to install, but somehow create new discs once I've updated one machine. I'm limited to 180 MB a day with satellite, and DSL is not available at the house.

How do I update my one machine (yum, apt, whatever) then create install discs using the updated packages from that one machine? I don't know if it's possible, but it can't hurt to ask, right?

With yum, I believe you can tell it to save the RPM's for installation. Have them saved then setup this machine that you'll be pulling down the packages as it's own yum server, have your other machines update from it.

Try googling yum repository or the like, plenty of howto's on setting it up.
