Running Fedora Core 2 Test3, yum worked wonderfully for the first "yum
upgrade" (646 packages and no problems), which took yum from
2.0.7-0.20040416 to 2.0.7-1.1.  After that "yum upgrade/update" would

        [root at cmccabe-fc2 packages]# yum update
        Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
        Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Base
        retrygrab() failed for:
        http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/2/i386/os/headers/head er.info
          Executing failover method
        failover: out of servers to try
        Error getting file
        [Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 403: Forbidden

rmp -e yum ; rpm -ihv yum-2.0.7-0.20040416.noarch.rpm and everything
worked again.  Tried this twice with the same results.  20040416 keeps
working flawlessly.

I'm no Linux god, but I can follow instructions if you need anything
