I run Smart on all my FC5 boxes, and Yumex as well. They are 
configured the same, though I haven't bothered to enter all the 
mirrors in Smart that are looked up by Yumex - it's one area 
where Smart is a bit cumbersome, so I haven't bothered. So, the 
repos are exactly the same on my machines for both package 
managers, but the Yumex configuration has more mirrors to try.
