You are currently using yum, I take it.  If so, you don't really need
to mirror the Red Hat stuff locally.  You can use their yum repos AND
add your own local repo.  Just build the repo using yum-arch and add
it to your yum.conf files on the machines.  If you want to mirror it
locally, though, you certainly can.  Most folks use rsync to keep
their mirror up to date.
