Oho! That's why I keep hearing about it! I did check, and got this:
[root at localhost btth]# rpm -q epiphany
package epiphany is not installed
[root at localhost btth]#

(I don't know another way to do that besides with rpm -q ; should I?

OK, let me be clear, because I'm still an unknown distance over my head

While you wrote that very helpful post, I went and got
yum-2.0.7-1.noarch.rpm (I already disremember where -- RedHat I think);
did rpm -Uvh on it; backed up yum.conf; replaced it with the sample
yum.conf at http://mirror.cc.vt.edu/yum.conf (which is just across town,
and which I had used when I had FC1 running before). Then I ran
yum.update; it appeared to run normally -- and got only two little kdepim
things; so I presume FC1 itself should now be update, right? 

Now, I *think* iirc (and I do mean IF) you must mean that I copy the line
above (or perhaps the one below) starting with baseurl into my working
yum.conf -- somewhere. Right? Where? Or should I just be able to do
something like "yum get epiphany" with the yum.conf the way it is?

I've lurked on a couple of these lists long enough to realize what a good
name dag has. Is there a reason a non-user of Mozilla per se should prefer
that in this case?
