Why edit yum.conf instead of yum.repos.d/fedora.repo and
yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo? By editing yum.conf, people will get
the warnings about repos already being defined.

The baseurls seem to be inconsistent. If you've run
"createrepo /var/www/html/yum/base" then the baseurl should be:
http://192.168.0.xx/yum/base
and not:
http://192.168.0.xx/yum/Fedora/core/$releasever/base/RPMS

A better tweak for the baseurl on the machine hosting the local repo is:

rather than:
baseurl=http://localhost/yum/base
use:
baseurl=file:///var/www/html/yum/base

This makes yum faster because it doesn't bother downloading and caching
the packages from the web server.

In step 5, there is a typo: /var/www/html/yum/upates in the rsync
command should be /var/www/html/yum/updates
