The problem with this is I don't have the headers directory in the ftp
server of our LAN. I have the packages only in the ftp server. yum is
saying that failed to find the headers. My ftp server's directory
structure is like the link
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/2/i386/os but,
without the headers and SRPMs directories. Is there a way to use yum
to install packages with yum from this ftp server also?

thanks,
ramana.
