ok, i think got it.

Yum Extender:

* Yum Extender (yumex) is a new GUI front end for managing your updates and package installations via yum. Yum Extender is to yum as Synaptic is to apt. It is now included in Fedora Extras. To install yumex:

* Click on the terminal icon. This will open the terminal. Type:

su -

Hit enter, type your root password and hit enter.

* Type:

yum -y install yumex

Hit enter. Wait for the installation to complete. Yum Extender will now appear in "Applications" > "System Tools".

http://www.fedorafaq.org/ This is a great place for the budding Fedora enthusiast.

It briefly explains what repositories are and includes some, of course Google will get you your answers

(it's for FC4 but the concepts are the same)
