I'm using Suse 10 to perform security scans on a shared network (no Internet connectivity) for multiple businesses and am wanting to put together a method of updating the OS and the NMAP/Nessus tools that I use. Is Suse the way to go for this or is another release better and easier to maintain in an offline format such as this?

Thanks for any guidance anyone can give...

I wonder if you could do a "rsync" with the suse updates..then point all the local machines to the repository that was updated...

I use a USB Harddrive to take updates and stuff like this and you could easily bring a update repository around with you...
