Local YUM RHEL 5 Update Server

I need to create a local RHEL5 Update Server to help eliminate the number of servers exposed to the web. All the local rhel5 servers need to be able to use this server as a repository for patches. I have a server registered with Redhat and would like to use yum to accomplish this.
yum.conf:
 
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=1
plugins=1
 
# Note: yum-RHN-plugin doesn't honor this.
metadata_expire=1h
 
# Default.
# installonly_limit = 3
 
# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d
 
**************************************************************************************************************
yum.updatesd.conf:
 
[main]
# how often to check for new updates (in seconds)
run_interval = 3600
# how often to allow checking on request (in seconds)
updaterefresh = 600
 
# how to send notifications (valid: dbus, email, syslog)
emit_via = dbus
# should we listen via dbus to give out update information/check for
# new updates
dbus_listener = yes
 
# automatically install updates
do_update = no
# automatically download updates
do_download = no
# automatically download deps of updates
do_download_deps = no

Hi,

Use cobbler and a web-server to publish your repos.
