	Paul:

	Are you seeing a throbbing exclamation point for the applet?
I have a fresh new install of FC4, and the applet does not see the
available updates, but upon starting up2date by clicking on the applet I
get notification of the available packages.

The only uncommented lines in etc.../sources:

### Repo Metadata
# Note that setting this makes up2date look in /etc/yum.repos.d/ for
# repository configuration.
# type channel-label url
repomd fedora http://fedora.redhat.com/

i find that url is suspicious so I tried to point it to the repo no help
there, perhaps the repo that the applet looks at is coded elsewhere.
