I tried installing RealPlayer10GOLD through yum installer. But first I followed some tutorial where they delete the existing yum.conf and reinstall yum. Here is what I did at the terminal and chahging the directory to etc,
mv -f yum.conf yum.conf.bak
rpm -Uvh /root/yum /root/livna-release-5.rpm
After this, it says livna-release-5-8 and yum is installed. But later when I tried yum list available, it gave me "No such config file /etc/yum.conf"
WHY? Just because of this, I reinstalled Fedora.

Did a rm -R / to find out that I lost my entire Linux installation!

You renamed your yum file, and then didn't create a new one. None of the instructions I have seen anywhere say anything about renaming the yum.config. Perhaps the instructions said to copy the config file? The livna-release doesn't contain a new yum.conf.
Next time, you can just do mv -f yum.conf.bak yum.conf, which would rename your config file back to what it was.
