Is there another program I can download it to my usb drive and install on my computer. I don't want to go through the trouble of reconfiguring Yum to work offline, unless someone can really break it down. :mad:

What exactly do you mean ? Yum doesn't need to be reconfigured to work offline. Once you've got the packages to install/update you can copy them to a directory on the disk and do a 'yum localinstall' or 'yum localupdate' and it will happily chew whatever you throw at it. It's a good dog, after all... :D

And with yum-utils installed you can choose to just download the needed packages in order to transport them to another machine.
But you could try smart. I heard, that it is in Fedora Extras now.
