Not sure it matters but I usually do

yum update yum rpm
yum clean all
yum update

I heard elsewhere that there can be problems if you do not update glibc 
before updating the rest of the OS. I heard that after two of my boxes 
were already updated the above way and they didn't experience any 
issues, so maybe it was bogus, but it certainly can't hurt to do

yum update glibc


remote server, be sure to do it inside of screen.
