OK, good.  Have you set the proxy configuration?  Check 'man yum' and
search for 'proxy'.  "No route to host" is (surprise, surprise) a
routing problem, so that could be a proxy issue.  Now try these:

a) telnet download.fedora.us 80

   (I expect it to give you a similar error.)

b) export your proxy variable and try with urlgrabber (as you did
   above) again.  If that doesn't work, we'll keep looking.
