Configure YUM so it keeps the files it's downloaded (read the manual for
details how).  Run YUM again, and exclude the packages that won't update
without problems (again, read the manual).  Unless you've got stacks of
updates to be done, running it again oughtn't to be very time consuming.
It'll only work out what needs to be done, and then use the files it's
already cached.

NB:  Doing a yum clean all will throw away all the files you've
downloaded, and force you through all that time wasting again.  I
wouldn't recommend it unless something's fouled up every package that
you downloaded.  That'd have to be a very serious problem.

(Currently testing FC5, but still running FC4, if that's important.)
