If you want it to clean the ? then add the option eg:
# yum clean all  or whatever.

I suggest that that system wasn't up2date, but is now. Anyway, Fedora 
project does not release any more updates (since 2006-Feb). The project 
is transferred to Fedora Legacy. You would need to follow the steps in:
http://fedoralegacy.org/  and  http://fedoralegacy.org/docs/yum-fc3.php
to enable the legacy-updates repo.

This one may be fully up2date with the Fedora Core 3 updates-released. 
To get continued updates with FC3, you would need to configure Fedora 
Legacy project updates, as described in the above URLs.
