Yum workaround for dial-up user

I'm running FC5. My Internet access is dial-up only. For updates and
installs less than 10 MB I use Yum. I recently used a hybrid approach
to install KDE and to update OpenOffice. The approach seemed to work.
However I'm concerned that there may be hidden problems which surface
The KDE install was 18 packages totalling 125 MB. The OpenOffice update
was 9 packages totalling 97 MB. In each case, I used Yum to obtain a
list of needed packages. I used a web browser to individually download
each package. (I used a public access PC having a broadband connection
to download large packages.) Then for the KDE install (OpenOffice
update) I issued one RPM command which included all 18 (9) packages.
My concern is that this hybrid approach may omit updating some Yum
database which needs to be updated to ensure continued correct
functioning of Yum. Is my Yum workaround OK?
