Upgrading Mandrake 9.1RC2 to Mandrake 9.2 final Without ISOs

I want to upgrade my Mandrake installation, but I want to keep downloading to as minimal as possible, and I don't want to download any ISOs. Any suggestions on how I might accomplish this? I found an interesting article at but how much time will it save me while I download? Also, can I skip the step mentioned about upgrading my kernel with urpmi, and instead just plain upgrade to 2.6 right away? Thanks for any and all help.

Ok, I tried it, and it seemed to work. However, it failed, complaining about clashing dependencies and such. I deleted /var/lib/rpm/Pubkeys because it kept complaining about that, and rebuilt the RPM database. Now when I run urpmi --auto-select, it installs mostly fine, but at the end spits out:
Am I correct in assuming that the mirror I am using does not contain these files?
