One option is to plug in your usbkey, and then rsync or cp the rpms over to
/var/cache/yum....  on the system you are about to update.  Then yum -y
update will update the full system, and only download any additional rpms
into /var/cache/yum/ that it needs over and above those you copied in from
the key.
