"yum update" with most of the rpms already on a USB key?



  having already installed F11 alpha (x86_64) and done a "yum update",
i copied all of the packages that were downloaded for the update
(/var/cache/yum/...) onto a USB key.

  now having installed the same onto another system, i want to do an
update but, obviously, let "yum update" know that a lot of what it
needs is over there, under /media/KINGSTON/yumupdaterpms.

  what's the incantation?  is that what "yum localupdate" is for?
thanks.
