Hey Experts!

I'm attempting to turn my linux box into an update server for the other clients under my watch. I have Apache set up on my linux(Mandrake 10.1) box, but I can't get the clients to communicate like it should? I had the KDE 3.2 front end and they all use the rpmdrake update to update, but currently they go outside our network to get their updates (very slow). I'd rather their machines update from my computer over our internal network (much faster)

Is there a special way i need to set up my machine/Apache in order to accomplish this?

Any help would be fabulous!
