Adding 3rd Party Repositories to YUM?

I normally add RPMFORGE / DAG to my RHEL 5 machines however I have a server and I can't remember if I added the repository to the machine so I was wondering how someone can check on the server if I have added this in the past. I know that in Debian / Ubuntu, I am able to cat /etc/apt/source.list and see the repository listed.

Can someone please help me out in RHEL 5?

You'll need to look at /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory. In there, you will see your repo files. For example, rpmforge.repo, epel.repo, etc. Each repo file contains the configurations for that particular repo and if it's enabled or not. Hope this helps.
