all the repos should be in /etc/yum.repos.d
you can edit each of their "enabled" lines "1" is active "0" is off.
you can also specify repos in the yum command ie,
yum update --disablerepo=livna
if you have it set to "1" but it's giving trouble or
yum update --enablerepo=livna
if you have it set to "0" but want to use it.

When yum finds a package it normally tells where it's found it.
The man pages are quite good, just do
man yum
