just edit pacman.conf and uncomment neccessory lines.
for example:
    # Add your preferred servers here, they will be used first
    Server = <URL of the repo>
    Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

the repo defined here in the line 'Server = ' has the highest
priority. of coz it's optional.
if undefined, all the repos weill be retrived from the /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.
many REPOs have been pre-defined in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist and what
you should do is simply uncomment the ones you want to use.
