If it's any use, here's my /etc/yum.repos.d/local.repo file:

name=Fedora Local Repo

While /Repo contains:

$ ls /Repo
EFI     isolinux    repodata                       RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-13-SPARC  RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-sparc64
GPL     media.repo  RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora             RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-i386      RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-x86_64
images  Packages    RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-13-primary  RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-sparc     TRANS.TBL

(It's just a copy of the distro DVD, so YMMV).
