Do you mean you screwed up your repositories, or that you accidentally
deleted files from some directory? What happens when you run

yum update

as root?

Generally you can find very good advice about yum at fedorafaq.org.

# yum check-update

Reading repository metadata in from local files

It no longer has fedora repositories.

That sounds like an en easy fix. Either download or find and reinstall from
your FC-5 CD/DVD

Fedora-release-5-5.noarch.rpm

A link to a fast download site, for me, is http://tinyurl.com/y3tq4l

It is a very small package.

David: Thanks for the reminder that my FC5 CDs are not just for the first install. :)

I tried your suggestion, and  downloaded the rpm and ran:
# rpm -Uvh fedora-release-5-5.noarch.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
       package fedora-release-5-5 is already installed

I think I need to find a working directory at /etc/yum.repos.d to replace the fedora directories I deleted from that directory and from /var/cache/yum
Thanks, Tom
