RHEL Updates without RHN

I have downloaded the source RPMs for RHEL 4, and compiled them into bianaries and burned the CDs (It was actually pretty interesting, all in all) and wanted to know if there is a way to get updates to the system without going through RHN. Anyone know?

Yep, you have to rebuild the source rpms. You could also look into RHEL rebuilds like CentOS and Whitebox.
