[Yum] Information about using groups

I'm trying to avoid having to run yum remove <pkg> on 300+ servers
individually.  I looked at yum-shell and I didn't see how I would easily
be able to remove a package on all servers arbitrarily.  If I'm wrong,
could you point me in the direction of where to look for information on
how to get this going?

why not just use a yum-shell script or just a list of pkgs tied onto the
end of 'yum -y remove'?
