# yum clean
# yum clean all

... will clear down any locally cached yum information. The Yum
configurations themselves are held in

/etc/yum.conf             #(main configuration file, repositories can
be configured here)
/etc/yum.repos.d/       #(individual repository configurations in
reponame.repo files)
