Not sure what you want to change in the repository files. The above
guide has bits and pieces about the yum configuration files. If you
prefer a GUI, use yumex or kyum from the extras repository
#yum install yumex kyum
Here is more details.
Previous versions of yum had a single configuration in /etc/yum.conf
where all the repositories and yum configuration options were stored.
This was determined to be tedious to manage for users and it was hard
for new repositories to be added by packages. Now the main configuration
in in /etc/yum.conf and the repositories are in /etc/yum.repos.d. Each
of the repository files end with the extension ".repo" and are generally
named after the repository information they hold. The extras repository
is available for FC3 and FC4. For FC4, it is enabled by default and
the information is in the file /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-extras.repo.
