I've found a couple of articles about this subject online but they also had a footnote that says this is not supported by Novell and be careful in case you blow anything up. :)

I was wondering if there was a Novell doc out there for creating a local repository (their way) so that you can download all updates to that box and then point all of your servers to it on the LAN to get the updates they need.
