Try to run 'rpm -qa | grep "yum" and paste the output.
If you have removed 'yum' from your system, you have to download the 
latest yum rpm from a FC6 Updates repo.
And install it with 'rpm -Uvh yum*.rpm' (as root)
The following command
rpm -Uvh http://www.fedorafaq.org/yum 
only installes some repo files + GPG keys for different repositories.
