Thanks Seth.  

Currently ISO installs (via CD-ROM or network) aren't an option for
a set of servers.  I'm curious if there's any value in using yum to
perform upgrades where new packages must be introduced (a
combination of yum upgrade and install), or if a bulk rpm -Fvh
RPMS/* (or something similar) would be simplest.  If any list
members have had this task to deal with and have any advice to
share, I'd appreciate it.
