[PlanetCCRMA] Upgrading CCRMA without a net connection

	I have been a happy CCRMA user for a couple of months now
(fedora core, using the cdrom images). I don't have a net connection at
home, but I have a very fast one at work (and employers who let me suck
up as much bandwidth as I need). I have manually upgraded (or in PD's
case just added) apps by downloading the rpm's and doing the old rpm
-Uvh. This has worked great for stand alone apps (a couple of non CCRMA
apps, like xfe have given me some grief but that's for a different
list). I would like to upgrade to the latest jack and alsa stuff, but
this is a bit more scary. I have a feeling both are pretty dependency
heavy. If there was a way that I could download all of the latest rpm's
without right-clicking one rpm at a time I would be a very happy fellah.

	Does anyone else do the planet this way? Tips/hints/pitfalls? I
can't be the only one in the world without a decent at home net
