I don't see a questionmark, so I can only guess at what the answer will be

It does not take duplicate RPMs into account. It simply copies the content
of the directory that you mention into the suse directory. What I do is
use /usr/src/packages/RPMS as default and here as example:
houghi@penne : tree -d /usr/src/packages/RPMS/
/usr/src/packages/RPMS/
|-- athlon
|-- i386
|-- i486
|-- i586
|-- i686
`-- noarch

Place the RPM's in those directories. If they are duplicate, they should
be overwritten.
I also do a `createrepo /usr/src/packages/RPMS/` so I also have the
createrepo directory and data on my DVD.

As they should be overwritten, you can just use the
`makeSUSEdvd -i -d /srv/www/htdocs/suse10.1` command to place them on your
website (Or use any other directory if you want)
