easy answer...rpmforge is for all purposes of Fedora Core 4, dag

install this package
http://rpmforge.net/user/packages/rpmforge-release/

rpm -ivh http://rpmforge.net/user/packages/rpmforge-release/
should do it

Grabbed it, but slightly confused.  The site says that it contains the
gpg-keys, but yum says I need the keys to install it.  I'm still looking
for the keys - I'm sure they must be there, but they are certainly not
obvious.

then yum update - should be interesting

yum search lshw

with the right repositories, you shouldn't have to go searching around
the number of places rpms can be found.

Circular argument, Craig, and that's what's confusing me. I presume you got them from the package, but -

Installing:
rpmforge-release i386 0.2-2.2.fc4.rf /home/anne/Downloads/rpmforge-release-0.2-2.2.fc4.rf.i386.rpm 14 k

Public key for rpmforge-release-0.2-2.2.fc4.rf.i386.rpm is not installed

so I don't have those keys because it didn't install. Do I have to install with something like '--nokeys' ?

----
hmmm...I don't recall ever having this issue but yeah, it would seem
that is an issue...is there a --nokeys option to rpm? I don't think so.
I think there is a --nosignature option though

Anne's trying to use yum to install the keys needed for yum, which as she says is a bit of a circular problem.

It can be fixed by using rpm directly to install the rpmforge-release package.

$ sudo rpm -Uvh /home/anne/Downloads/rpmforge-release-0.2-2.2.fc4.rf.i386.rpm

Paul.
