Default RHEL 3 Updates

I have 2 RHEL 3 machines. One is registered and one is not. Neither one of them have any updates. The machine that is registered, I downloaded all of the updates BUT I did not install them. I ftp'd the updates to my other non-registered machine. Is ther a way that I can install these updates with out registering this machine? I looked at the up2date man page but I didn't see anything there that helped me.

Thanks in advance!

If the rpm files where all in the same directory, you can try this: Enter the directory and execute this command:

rpm -Uhv *.rpm

its always nice to try "rpm -Uvh *.rpm --test" first just to see if there are any dependencies missing.
