  you need to nfs mount a shared directory.
Edit /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date, set keepAfterInstall to 1
and storageDir to that shared directory.
  GUI won't work because primarilly you need a shared space, and
except NFS that won't work well, and setting up an NFS space is
not a simple GUI click option. But it ain't hard for a sysadmin.
