Hi David,
I do have it enabled, but I don't see the package in listing.
Example (util-linux now in lbox-testing repo)

[root at hbtest2 lb5.x86_64]# yum --allow-downgrade --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=lbox-testing list util-linux\*
Loaded plugins: allowdowngrade, protectbase
Excluding Packages in global exclude list
Finished
0 packages excluded due to repository protections
Installed Packages
util-linux.x86_64                        2.13-0.47.el5          installed

[root at hbtest2 lb5.x86_64]# yum --allow-downgrade --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=lbox-testing install util-linux\*
Loaded plugins: allowdowngrade, protectbase
Excluding Packages in global exclude list
Finished
0 packages excluded due to repository protections
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package matching util-linux-2.13-lb5.01.x86_64 already installed. Checking for update.
Nothing to do

n.
