I used yum directly to go through a proxy. I had to do something like this:
http_proxy=http:// where <proxy> is the name of your proxy server and #### is the port.
export http_proxy HTTP_PROXY
export ftp_proxy FTP_PROXY
Also, take a look at /etc/yum.conf and the repository files in
fedora-list mailing list
