Adding more repositories to yum in Red Hat EL 4

I have redhat EL 4 installed. I'm setting up yum on it following the directions here:

While things are working, some of the packages that I need (e.g., irsim, electric) are not available through this repository.

What other repositories are compatible with RH EL 4 and how can I set them up? Do these repositories provide a RPM package? Then, would I just do:

rpm -ivh <repo-package.rpm>
yum update

Look at the Centos repos (Centos is RHEL with the logos removed). Their wiki will also point you to other compatible repos.
