First, let's verify that the k12ltsp.repo file has not been modified:
rpm -Vf /etc/yum.repos.d/k12ltsp.repo
There should be output from this command (just a blank line).
If you see something like this, your repository config had been
S.5....T. c /etc/yum.repos.d/k12ltsp.repo
Next, let's check the "mirrorlist" url in /etc/yum.repos.d/k12ltsp.repo
$ cat /etc/yum.repos.d/k12ltsp.repo | grep mirrorlist
$ links http://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/mirrors/k12ltsp-4.4
And finally, let's check the URL for the mirror...
$ links http://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/K12LTSP/4.4.0/
Here you should get a list like this:
[DIR] RPMS/ 23-Jun-2005 10:57 -
[DIR] SRPMS/ 28-Jun-2005 08:14 -
[ ] TODO 06-Jul-2005 15:20 313
[DIR] headers/ 08-Jul-2005 18:47 -
[DIR] i386/ 06-Jun-2005 19:45 -
[DIR] iso/ 08-Jul-2005 18:32 -
[DIR] repodata/ 08-Jul-2005 18:45 -
If you can get this far but yum still does not work, the only thing
that jumps to mind is that you have proxy settings set in your
shell environment that are different than in your /etc/yum.conf.
Does your network require explicit proxy configurations?

As always, I hope I was of some help.
