In am prev. machine I had installed SUSE11 and there was a manager tool for software repositories. In it it was easy to add third party repositories to the default list from the installation.
Going on to SLC6.3 I tried the same with the software install tool but failed.
I believe I had found 'rpms' which (I thought) would add additional entries to the list. (Please correct if this assumption is wrong) But the software tool said there was a conflict and the new repository was not accessible.
is this assumption of use model correct? What is the best / most complete repository that can be added to /etc/yum.repos.d/ and give a good set of software titles to add?

You can do "yum install epel-release rpmforge-release" to get the epel and rpmforge repo installed with their signing keys along.
While I believe that epel works without any hassle, I suggest you to take care when using rpmforge repo.

DO NOT COMBINE EPEL AND RPMFORGE!!!
Unless of course you want to mess up your system and like debunking it for hours
