I guess its not installed by default - but is part of the distribution
and is on the CDs

Yes. It has FC1 Release & FC1 Updates repositories listed. Using it
you can also install epiphany (the default version in FC1
distribution) with it.

yum install epiphany

yeah - you add another section for the reposotory. I personally have a
separate yum.conf.dag file - (so that I can do updates on the default
config file - but selective install from 'dag' rep)

cp /etc/yum.conf /etc/yum.conf.dag

yum -c /etc/yum.conf.dag install galeon pine
