You may/may not be aware of potential pitfalls in
repository mixing particularly in fedora. If you want
the latest and greatest look to fedora. If you want a
stable enterprise grade distro for use as a server
look to centos.

Don't think about migrating/doing a yum
upgrade/downgrade from fedora to centOS by yum as you
will experience plenty of hassle. Simply get centos
4.3 on isos and install from sratch.

You should have a CentOS-Base.repo. To install dag get
the rpmforge release. Your /etc/yum.repos.d/ should
look as follows.

$ ls /etc/yum.repos.d/
CentOS-Base.repo            rpmforge.repo
