If you are looking for YUM server in RHEL5(Redhat Enterprise Linux version 5) you can click here other wise just read on..
Recently I came across a strange requirement.. i.e. implementing YUM(Yellow dog Updater and Modifier) server in RHEL4 :(. By the time of RHEL4 release there is no YUM server implementation..
so I did some research and collected some documentation on net and implemented YUM server in RHEL4
configuring YUM server in RHEL4 as follows..
Stpe 1:Download following packages(these days the below packages are not present on net, so please download bleow RPM packages for Yum installation in RHEL4 )

yum-utils-0.3.1-1.fc4.noarch.rpm ( we need for repository)

Stpe 2: Install the above mention packages in the same sequence once you download them.

	rpm -Uvh sqlite-2.8.16-1.2.el4.rf.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh python-sqlite-0.5.0-1.2.elr4.rf.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh python-urlgrabber-2.9.6-1.2.el4.rf.noaarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh pytyhon-elementtree-1.26-1.2.el4.rf.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh python-celementtree-1.0.2-1.2.el4.rf.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh yum-2.4.2-1.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh yum-utils-0.3.1-1.fc4.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh createrepo-0.3.1-1.noarch.rpm

Step 3: Now dump your rpms from your RHEL4 cds/dvd

	cp -ar * /var/ftp/pub/Server/

Step 4: Create repository

	#createrepo -v /var/ftp/pub/Server/

Here yum server will create a repository and metadata. After creating metadata we can configure yum client on the same machine.. as follows

Step 5:Creating a repo file and updating with the repository details

#vi /etc/yum.repo.d/server.repo

name= Redhat repository

save the file and exit and start using yum to install packages in RHEL4.
