Best way to do it is get a list of packages to be updated (run yum on an 
unclassified machine and get the package list) and download the RPM's 
for those, either manually or using YUM. Then burn them to CD or DVD

Next time you should do a fresh install on an Unclass system, get it 
updated, get it moved into your Secure location, and maintain it from 
there. I recommend using a more stable life cycle distro than Fedora so 
you don't have to use as many discs to keep it up to date. This way it 
is complaint with your IA group and easier to maintain.

Military jargon is no different than financial jargon or computer 
jargon. If you don't understand it, there shouldn't be a need to 
persecute those who do. It isn't a conducive way to facilitate a 
community, and I take it that is what this list is supposed to be, since 
the list is labeled as: "Community assistance, encouragement, and advice 
for using Fedora".
