To keep the cache, edit the /etc/yum.conf file and add:

The yum cache will be in /var/cache/yum/REPO_NAME.

E.g., the rpmforge repo will be /var/cache/yum/rpmforge/packages.

You can copy the rpms in that dir to the same location on the next
server.. *or* share the location as a repository.  For one offs, it's
probably easier to just copy the rpms.
