Last question...I think. :)

Does fedora have anything like packages.debian.org where you can browse or search the repository?

Thanks guys!

Wow, you are the helpful friendly forum guy huh...

Maybe I am missing it but none of those are organized and categorized so you can browse thru them, are they? I may just be blind. I guess I am being picky since I rarely browse online....but just wondering since I like to point users to http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages to search for packages and I do not want to say that fedora doesn't have something similar if in fact it does.

Can you search the repo via yum or rpm, something similar to apt-cache search packagename?
(this might belong in my other thread?)

It depends upon whether the mirror has installed repoview or not.
If you want to view all available packages similar to what you are accustomed to, then install yumex.
Or you can use yum
yum list | grep packagename

# yum list | grep xfce
