	Hmmm ... I do it all the time, every day or two, on five or six 
boxes behind one router & KVM switch. I run "yum clean all," "updatedb," 
"rpm --rebuilddb," and then "yum update" whenever the previous update got 
something; otherwise I just keep repeating "yum update." I get the 
sequence started on one machine, then KVM-switch to the next and the 
next, till all have either completed or reported nothing to do. It's 
quite common for "yum update" to be running simultaneously on two -- or 

	(I know I don't need the updatedb and rebuilddb that often; but 
it's a way of remembering not to leave them undone for months at a time.)

	Maybe I've had troubles I should've recognized as stemming from 
that? Can I tell?? Or are you concerned only about them slowing one 
another down?
