Default Download of updates

Greetings,

I have noticed that Fedora updates with "yum update"* often runs into 500+MB of downloads.

I would like to know from the members of this list as to how much should a CentOs update size would be if I download a* DVD ISO image and install with it



(As it is a DVD download -- I can't use Bittorrent as I am sitting behind a firewall which I don't control -- takes more than 26 hours for download)

regards

Rajagopal

CentOS updates are generally not that large. Usually on the order of
5-25MB unless there's an openoffice update, or a quarterly update such
as the current move from 5.0 to 5.1. Those can get to be pretty large,
but my desktop migration was only around 145MB.
