RHEL4 is quite depressing, we use smart on our RHEL4 boxes (so that we have a 
feature that was available on Mandrake 7.0, in 2000, being able to install 
packages on the installation media after installation), but the repo file is 
actually for yum.

Unfortunately, up2date on RHEL4 doesn't understand the new RPM meta-data repo 
as used by yum/smart etc., only the old legacy yum 1.x format.

Let me see if I can run yum-arch on the repo ...
