Yes that's possible - I've done this myself with DVD ISOs mounted
on another Linux box served up via Apache. See section 14.2 of
the documentation I linked to in my previous reply.
Depending on how many SLES servers you have to upgrade/update you
may also want to look at the free Subscription Management Tool
(SMT) or charged for SUSE Manager products - I believe both
can also handle Red Hat too.
