Newb: How do I reset yum?


Fedora7, clean install, and post-update.

I was trying to install flash and followed a guide:
Code:
[mirandam@charon downloads]$ sudo rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-1.0-0.noarch.rpm
[mirandam@charon downloads]$ sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
[mirandam@charon downloads]$ sudo yum install flash-plugin
It didn't work, and now when I try to yum anything I get:

Code:
http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Date: Sat, 11 Aug 2007 05:07:16 GMT
Server: Apache
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: adobe-linux
Thanks.

Now when I run Software Updater, I get "Config error."

What have I done??

Under details it says none!

Ugh, I just installed it... I'm going to have to install it just to reset it?

I found and deleted the offending file from /etc/yum.repros.d/
