What I actually do is add the proxy info to the command line so
it is exported to yum - and I don't have a transparent proxy, I
just do it to make all the machines use the same cache which I've
configured to store large files.  I update often enough that I can
nearly always recall the command line from history with ^r3128 (the
squid port).  Or, I'll ssh to several machines and cut/paste the
command line between windows.

But, if you had more machines, you'd probably be trying other
distributions or versions on them.
