Have a look in /var/cache/yum/ that's where all my yum downloaded .rpms are. But if you're using yumex, the default setting is to delete them after install, you need to change that if you want to keep them.

No idea, I did it from the gui, click on "edit", "preferences", then untick "delete download packages after install"

I don't have-it either. Edit the file /etc/yum.conf and change keepcache=0 to keepcache=1.

You have to install yum extender or yumex first (yum install yumex).
Open the gui from "applications" "system tools". That's in FC4 anyway.
