Yes, (I've snipped the rest, where you indicate other places I should
have looked, but thank you.) 

As I said somewhere, I suspect I messed up the install, as I had to
later manually populate /etc/yum.repos.d after googling for where it
should be.

Hrrm.  Ok, this is installation on a VMware esx server, using, when
asked to choose guest, an oracle machine.  Devices are xvda and xvdb.  

(Maybe something to do with it being on ESXi?  On another, ESX 3.5
server, all RH is /dev/sda).

Along with, I'm sure, the OP, I want to thank you for this post, it
makes me realize that if we definitely do this for real, there are
obviously some things I missed.
