Interesting: I installed Synaptic to FC3 today with yum -y install 
synaptic and it works as it should.
In Synaptic: Settings menu, Repositories  - was all empty when I last 
checked some times ago - This was my problem.
I think problem started with updates and was solved too with some updates.

It proves again - dont touch when it works, start yum -y update only 
when you have real problem. Not to just up-do-date your system. After 
troubles with wine when updated initscripts screwd it up, i'm very 
worried. Then was problem with synaptic...
What to tell future homeuser clients? Never ever update your system? 
Until you are smart enough to reinstall from setup cd-s?

What package provides configuration for apt-get mirror-select ? Pure FC4 
install gives me nothing but error:
E: Failed to fetch mirror list file
