I think, just for the record, thats only true for FC4. For FC5 the default behavior was switched to delete them after installation.
Another feature I don't want!

What do I change to prevent yum from deleting them?

I prefer to control what my computer does and such things really bother me. I updated the kernel and it left me only one earlier one, deleted the rest!

I searched through the yum and yumex files and it's not obvious to me where
this is set.

Has a line "autocleanup = no" set to "no" in response to a menu item I found but I still don't find any saved rpm's. With FC4 those rpm's were a resource I used
in other computers ...

Hi Bob, I checked and yes all the rpm files from the upgrade (291) are being saved at the place under /var/cache/yum/. There are other things saved here as well.
