You have tried several mirrors resturning 404 errors - those servers
didn't have the requested file, at the address the client requested it.
This happens from time to time, thanks to mirrors being out of sync (not
being ready).  Eventually yum should find one that's okay, but sometimes
you might have to try a few times, or wait a while for the mirrors to
finish sorting themselves out.

(This box runs FC6, my others run FC4 & FC5, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
