I'm running Fedora 14 and cat /etc/fedora-release shows redhat release 5. Besides manually modifying the file, is there a proper way of fixing this?

Try running yum reinstall fedora-release as root.

As an aside, you might want to investigate how that got installed that way. There might be other problems on your system.
