(thank you wikipedia )
A repository is a central place where data is stored and maintained. A repository can be a place where multiple databases or files are located for distribution over a network, or a repository can be a location that is directly accessible to the user without having to travel across a network.
So the idea of a repository in terms of a distro is: A central area for users to collect RPMs/DEBs/etc from.
These benefit for you by allowing you to get all your favourite programs from some defined source. Otherwise you would need to hunt the web to find the right site that would have the right RPM for your system. Even then you would need that RPM to be compatible to your system and not install ontop of other RPMs files.

fixed resulting in much faster loading of software and eliminated unnecessary conflict warnings and such. Overall 10.2 is MUCH better and nicer to use than even 10.1. Aside from
that, the SuSE site has a list of repositories that you can use for YaST. Here's a link to OpenSUSE list...
Hope that helps and enjoy!
