The other (more complex I guess) alternative is:
- put the rpms in any folder.
- run createrepo (see man createrepo for details) - this will create a
repodata dir in the folder.
- add a repo file to /etc/yum.repos.d/
- perform the update
- remove the repo file and rpms directory
I haven't used the yum plugin that Frank suggested. I'm pretty sure
it'll be easier. I hope you have network enough to install that one
