trying to get the software updater to work in fc8

I am behind a corporate firewall, I understand I need to go through a proxy. I have the proxy info, but am not sure where to put it ie: for yum and for the software updater (which I understand uses yum). I would like to make sure my workstation is up to date. Please help.
