Tank You very much, I got it work.
I erased the 2.4.x rpm package installed installed this one -> 
after I made this yum started working again.
Than I got another 2.4 package -> yum-2.4.0-5.py24.noarch.rpm from 
and tried to install it with rpm ... there were many dependendcies I 
resolved with yum 2.2.2.
after I did this I erased yum 2.2.2 again with rpm -e and installed the 
new one with rpm -i.

I hope that helps the people which want to do the same as I did :-)

Greetings TrabiGo
