Repository
Quote:
what is repository

Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural re·pos·i·to·ries
Date: 15th century

1 : a place, room, or container where something is deposited or stored : depository
2 : a side altar in a Roman Catholic church where the consecrated Host is reserved from Maundy Thursday until Good Friday

4 : a place or region richly supplied with a natural resource
5 : a person to whom something is confided or entrusted

You'll note that repository is a noun---therefore it does not "work". In the context of Linux, perhaps you meant to ask "How does package management work?"

Seriously, you will get much better help here if you will ask complete questions including the context (i.e. explain why you are asking the question)

OK, so your system is updating automatically? Is that what you want it to do?

Have you used the package manager? In the menus, look for something called "Add/Remove Software" or maybe "Add/remove programs"

I don't know if this is relevant, but FC9 is a bit out of date.

As mentioned, look into the Add/Remove Software menu.
Alternately, at the cmd line (as root)

yum grouplist
yum groupinstall "<group name>"
# probably you want
yum groupinstall "Sound and Video"
