Why don't you just copy and paste the error message within CODE-tags and post it directly? Is it that lengthy? Because, if it is not, simply put the following in your post:

[code]<your error message here....
.....
....
...and it ends here[/code]

Which will look like this:

Code:
<your error message here....
.....
....
...and it ends here


I hope this helps.

ok i am going to type this manually
Code:
yum install elfutils-libelf-0.172-2.e17.i686.rpm
This system is not registered to RedHat subscription manager 
There are no enabled repos. **Run "yum repolist all" to see the repos you have.

You can enable repos with yum-config-manager --enable

I think the error messsage is pretty clear. A "repository" is a number of rpm-files with a small file containing a "table of contents" anyway, so it is not particularily important which repo you use as source. If you do not plan to keep the system for a longer period of time you might as well (this i assume because of the "test"-status) use the CentOS- or Fedora- repository and install the package from there or (perhaps even easier) download the rpm-files you want to install into a local directory and install from there. This has the advantage of you automaticaclly getting a list of additionally installed packages for free which you might need once you try to create a production-level system modeled after this test-system.

I hope this helps.
