redhat 9 packages

Just got an e-mail from redhat saying redhat 9 will not be supported for bugfixes and updates after may 1st. I just want to know if the updates that i have already downloaded and installed from (uptodate) are available on my system as packages that i can save on cd incase this system crashes and i have to reinstall, or i wanted to install redhat 9 on another system with the updated packages i have already. Dumb question but i had to ask.

Red Hat will be for enterprise or anything else...

Download Fedore Core , it's Red Hat " free version "

And yes, your packages are up to date untill may 1st after that, you cannot update with your red hat box (up2date) ...
