> Do most people use Internet yum-repositories or roll their own?
Duke uses both :)
people who run linux at home and want to use yum use the
people on duke's network use our internal servers which are faster and
have more/different pkgs (we do some other stuff internally)

True enough. Mirror.dulug syncs multiples times a day for the updates
rsync tree from red hat. We have a fairly good connection to them as
well. But our machine is slow and in need of some love :)

well, sorta. I'm just mirroring red hat directly. Use the gpgcheck and
grab red hat's key - if it doesn't match, well then you have an answer
