Just the repository name, in this case I think:
yum --disablerepo=atrpms install java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin

Add extra --dsiablerepo=NAME for any other third party repositories it
can't find (I guess they've ddropped support for Fedora 9).

If you don't know the name you can get it either from the name yum
reports when trying to get the metadata (e.g. the "[...] for
repository: atrpms" bit above) or from the files in /etc/yum.repos.d/
(where repository names are in square brackets within the files).

Finally if you still can't get yum working (but you really should be
able to) then you can download the java-1.6.0-openjdk and
java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin RPMS from
