This rpm only installs packages via cdrom. It is not useful. It does NOT work so do NOT try to use it. Use yum instead. It is useful. It is only included here because rpms have dependencies on it and we do not want to change those to remove the dependencies.
up2date is only included to fullfill dependancies. It is not meant to be the main updating system for Scientific Linux. Use yum instead. up2date can use yum for it's updating, but it uses the yum 2.0 style format, while Scientific Linux 4.x uses the yum 2.2 style format. Thus up2date will not get the regular updates.
We are including openafs, even though we do not feel that it is Enterprise production ready. It does work for the most part, but this version of openafs had not worked on all hardware.
