Is there a scripted approach to this that will always get a consistent
snapshot copy even if you run it while updates are being added in the
repositories?   Waiting for a new DVD spin avoids that issue.

If the networks don't have to be absolutely isolated, you might also
fire up a squid proxy on a box with internet access and point yum to
it, or perhaps use ssh port-forwarding to reach a network with an
internet proxy.
