FC13 network install using local repos

I'm trying to do an install from a network export of the install DVD and 
a repo created from /var/cache/yum which has every upgrade and install 
RPM I've ever pulled off the network. I tried putting the copy of 
/var/cache/yum in a subdirectory and running 'createrepo' (worked AFAIK) 
but I can't seem to export the correct thing to get the repo used. I 
thought the relative path was in the repodata subdir, but that doesn't 
seem to be getting used.

Can someone point me to a doc?

I just turn on the keepcache flag and then have all the RPMs I've ever 
actually used (as opposed to trying to keep a full and current set), and 
if something is obsolete I will just replace it the first time I 
download it.
