hdr(header file) question?

what is the hdr file for?
I have used yum to upgrade my distro from redhat 9 to Fedora 1.
i used "yum upgrade"
yum only downloads .hdr file
I want to know what is the .hdr file for? How come is so small the file.

This contains the necessary (needed) information about the packages. Basically the list of packages and related information. It doesn't contain any packages by itself. The packages are downloaded seperately on demand.
