Excuse my ignorance, but what's a repository?

And yes, I know it's not one of those petroleum bullets for constipation.

I've just started playing with FC5. What I've read says the Add / Remove Software applet needs to access the Internet but I'm fighting to get it through my company firewall. Apparently there's no newbie-friendly way to install software from the DVD set once the initial installation is finished. (So what good are they after the install?) I'm reading references to the term "repository" but I don't know what it means in this context.
