What's the parameter you don't understand ? reposync --help doesn't 
return a lot of parameters ....
Keep in mind though that reposync will only download rpms, and will not 
generate the yum metadata .. so you'll have to create it yourself with 
createrepo .
Why not just use rsync to get all the stuff in one go ?
And regarding fetching from rhn, it works but it's not supported by RH 
(even if reposync is included ... sigh ...)
