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

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?

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

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?

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

add the following text to it <<

[fc1-dag] name=Dag Wieers rep for FC1 baseurl=http://apt.sw.be/redhat/fc1/en/i386/dag


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