  (hoping this is the right way to submit updates for wiki pages.)

from this page:

  http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/YumAndRPM

first, there's this line:

  yum --disable "*" --enable "rpmforge" list available

i'm guessing that should be:

  yum --disablerepo "*" --enablerepo "rpmforge" list available

also, near the bottom (Method B):

  "For CentOS-5 - A package for rpmdevtools does not seem to be
available."

  actually, there's one in EPEL for 5.5, but i don't know if you're
counting packages that come from EPEL.  in any event, there's
certainly an rpmdevtools package that's installable on 5.5.
