You can see from
that this is a subject that comes up frequently on the yum lists.  I
would recommend you read through some of those posts to get some

Also, the exclude option in the yum.conf (man yum.conf for more
details) and the enablerepo and disablerepo may be precisely what you

Some of these features may require a newer version of yum than you
have (you didn't say CentOS3 or 4) but you can always pull out yum
from cvs if the feature you need is released later.
