Shortest answer:

Shorter answer: Yum will attempt to obtain files from whatever 
repository you tell it to use.  If you want to download files from an 
RHEL 5 repo, all you you need to do is configure said repo and tell Yum 
to use it.

As an addendum, you might be particularly interested in "yumdownloader", 
which is a tool for downloading packages (including source RPMs) without 
actually installing them.
