[CentOS] Upgrading CentOS 5.3 from local mirror

Good afternoon folks.

Earlier today, I started upgrading a few of our servers to 5.4 based
on input from the list.  So far, all has gone well.   I have about 6
servers (not very many, but still) that need to be upgraded.  Instead
of taking precious bits from the mirrors for each upgrade, I was
curious if I could rsync the 5.4 directory from a local mirror, and
configure yum to use that repo, if it would upgrade without issues?

Would I need anything other than the 5.4 folders to do the upgrade?
