You point up2date at a yum repo just like you point yum at a yum repo;
you can't (AFAIK) just point up2date at a local yum cache. You can
however set up a local yum repo, and have both yum and up2date use it.
So for instance if you had the following in a repo definition in
yum.conf or yum.repos.d/*.repo:
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
Then the equivalent for up2date would be the following entry
yum updates-released-fc3 http://my.local.repo/fedora/updates/3/$ARCH/
A yum repo can be based on a file:// or a http:// or an ftp:// style
