The point I think john is trying to make is that you can also just put
the updates and CR repos on a DVD (it might not fit) or usb hard drive /
key (better idea as this can hold several GB).

Then you can put that on the network and update from there.

It is not any harder than taking a DVD from place to place ... and is
actually safer as a DVD upgrade uses Anaconda to calculate the updates
and the REPOs use yum ... and yum does updates much better than anaconda
if you are staying in a major branch ... ie, the 6.x branch.
