CentOS 5 and Adding Yum Repositories


I am trying to add an additional repository to be able to just install certain using yum. I am trying to install clamav for CenOS 5 and went to the clamav.org website and I have the directions on how to do so. They gave good repositories that are maintained by Dag Wieers dag at wieers*com.

http://www.clamav.net/download/packages/packages-linux

So how do I add these repos to /etc/yum.repos.d/ so that I can just install this app via yum?

In Red Hat/CentOS the Dag Wieers repository is now included in the RPMforge repo. By installing RPMforge, you have access to the clamav software provided by Dag Wieers. Just follow instructions here and the trick is done.
