How are you downloading the files?
Look in the preferences from your browser to see/set the download location.

Kind regards

What files? Do you mean official Fedora packages or some other software from online repositories? How did you download them? Please, provide more details.

Packages installed with yum are deleted right after install.

But new installs can be saved by editing /etc/yum.conf :
Edit : keepcache=0 , to : keepcache=1

Packages cache : /var/cache/yum/<repo-name>/packages
.. Like : /var/cache/yum/fedora/packages

.

repositories are usually either web servers or ftp servers, so all you really need to know is the URL of the repository, the directory it's in and the name of the package and it's dependencies and you could do a manual download of said packages with a web browser and burn them to disk (or copy them to your thumb drive)

just a thought.

this command dose not "download" a program
yum install [file nanme]"

as per the command it INSTALLS it

if you want to download ONLY and not install a fedora 15 rpm you need to install the "download-only" yum plugin

BUT that rpm will ONLY work on a fedora 15 box that has the SAME updates installed.

please read the yum help and man page
Code:
yum --help
------------
man yum
