Updating Fedora

I was wondering what the best way to update fedora was without using its up2date util. I'm in a closed network without an internet connection however i also don't like the idea of downloading 200+ files to update. is there anything out there like a service pack i can download and run that one file?

Unfortunately there are no service packs. All the methods I know require a net connection to collect the upgrades from a Fedora core mirror.
