Tutorial: Adding Mirror Entries for YUM and FC2

Would somebody please post a few examples of how to add mirror entries to the YUM.CONF file?

The text on the Wiki site lists a whole bunch of USA Mirror sites, but their various URLS don't match the text that is supposed to be inserted for FC2.

Thanks in advance.

I found this tutorial:

Tutorial Using FC1 as Example

I used the author's example for, then verified the directory path.
The two $ variables represent '2' and 'i386' for my instance.

I plugged this into my YUM.CONF file and it works well.
