restoring rpm packages in fedora


i was earlier an ubuntu user and I used to keep my .deb files backup with me located at /var/cache......
in the filesystem of ubuntu, now i want the same thing in fedora also where all of my .rpm files are stored and whom i can easily restore whenever i install new fresh installation of fedora like i used to do it in ubuntu with the command
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Please tell me any such way ?

by default they aren't stored anywhere. You can easily reinstall them via yum or whatever other automated mechanism they are installed by.

What version of fedora ? I am assuming fedora 16

you might want to have a read through the fedora documentation
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/index.html
"Deployment_Guide"

Is there an option in the package manager whether to retain downloaded RPMs? If so, select it and look under /var/cache/yum/ for a directory probably named RPMS.

update:
I was able to find this in a Google search quite easily:

I hope it is current. You can edit /etc/yum.conf so the rpms are retained. The web page has more details.
