Centralized Updating - like ZENworks


I run a few SuSE 10.0 servers, and quite soon will be running about half a dozen of them. It's quite time-consuming to run YAST / YOU (SuSE's online update tools) on each one, one at a time, and install the updates.

Is there any software out there (free/open-source, not expensive like Novell ZENworks) which will collect information on the packages installed on a dozen or so servers, download the relevant updates, and install them to all machines in need?
