fun with RPMs

I've been trying to fix a repository issue on a F8 machine. I was given
a 'teach you how to fish' version of the process; I made some progress,
but now I'm stumped. The advice was to find the RPM for this release, 
and find the /etc/yum.repos.d file.

I *think* that I found the RPM; on the dvd, in the directory 'Packages' 
is "rpm-" - is that the file I need? (For a 
download, it's .../os/Packages.)

I opened it with the archive manager. My problem is that I can't find 
that repos file.

What's the story?
