Thanks. In excuse, I assumed that "man yum.conf" deals solely with yum.conf . I should have thought description of the format of *.repo files would come under "man yum" - or there should at least be a pointer there to the location of such a description. A good "yum FAQ" would be useful - advising on the steps to take if yum fails, for various reasons (dependency conflicts, etc).
Conflicts! If you use just the "official" or "approved" repositories like a good FC user should there should not be any or wait a day for the mirrors to sync. ;-) Documentation: Have you tried: http://www.linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/ and http://www.phy.duke.edu/~rgb/General/yum_HOWTO/yum_HOWTO/yum_HOWTO.html#toc1
