Question about updating noncrit/critical patches

I installed the base version of Redhat linux AS4, without
any patches or updates.

I want to update with the latest with the latest patches.
From the software downloads of,
I see that they are up to:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4 Update 3 (x86)

What are the different way to update with the latest updates?
I know now that I could have downloaded these updates and installed from this, rather than the base version.

What is up2date ?

up2date, Red Hat's tool to install all available updates.

run it, point it at the update location you want to use, then walk away for a few hours.
[ reports have it that up2date is very slow so it can be a while to update ]
