According to http://www.stl.gtri.gatech.edu/fedora/, I should only need:

yum updates http://www.stl.gtri.gatech.edu/fedora/x86_64/updates/

Right now, this directory contains only XFree86-libs-4.3.0-55.x86_64.rpm, and does not have the i386 rpm.

what is the best thing for that page to say? i'd like to keep the x86_64 updates stuff complete, accurate and timely.

I _think_ you need to say that you need:

yum updates http://www.stl.gtri.gatech.edu/fedora/x86_64/updates/
yum updates-i386 http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/1/i386/

With a very strong encouragement to use one of the mirrors for the x86 stuff, instead.
