SuSE 11 RPM

Carl Spitzer-4
According to a friend he can not find out how to retain downloaded RPM
so he can use them on another site where there is not broadband.

How can he localize the repository to use it for multiple computers in
his local network?
What can he use to boot the remote machine?  Is there a boot CD?  How
can he make a boot CD?

Carl,

        On 11.0 he needs to set the --keep-packages flag for each of the repositories
he would like to cache the rpms for.

zypper mr -k <alias>

or

        just edit the /etc/zypp/repos.d/* files and set 'keeppackages=1'. The rpms are
cached under: /var/cache/zypp/packages/<repo name>. There is then a command to
turn the cached rpms into a repository for use by other machines, but that is
were the scope of my knowledge currently ends..... Only so much time in a
day.......

Is there any way to get those already installed?

How are the patches (not the full rpm's) handled?
