Yam builds a local APT/Yum RPM repository from local ISO files, downloaded updates, and extra packages from 3rd party repositories. Yam project takes care of setting up the ISO files, downloading the RPMs, configuring HTTP access and providing PXE/TFTP resources for remote network installations.

Here are some key features of "Yam":

Easy Yum-alike configuration
Supports mirroring using FISH, FTP, HTTP, RSYNC and SFTP
Supports Apt, Yum and up2date (as well as synaptic, yumgui and other derivatives)
Can work directly from ISO images (so you don't need extra diskspace to store ISOs or copy RPMs)
Supports Red Hat, Fedora Core, Red Hat Enterprise (TaoLinux, CentOS) and Yellow Dog Linux out of the box
Will probably work with other RPM based distributions (feedback needed, please mail me)
Allows for remote network installation (using a PXE-enabled NIC on target systems)
Support for 3rd party repositories and vendor packages
Allows to maintain your own customized (corporate) repository
Allow for chaining Yam servers in large organisations with remote sites
Can hardlink duplicate packages (to save precious diskspace)
