    I recently rebuilt a low level P2 PC to function as a firewall for my
    home network. The unit had been running RH8 for some time, and it was
    time for a change. The hard drive was replaced and a fresh copy of
    Fedora Core 3 was loaded. After a bit of configuration, is has been
    working properly for a couple of months now.

    Once again, this is a low level PC and CAN NOT have a GUI installed.
    Everything needs to be done from the command line.

    Now, I wish to make sure it is properly updated on a regular basis. So
    I attempted to first use yum by attempting some non-committal commands
    like "yum check-update" and "yum list all". Both produced errors
    similar to those below.

    On a client Windows PC, I download the latest copy of yum from the Duke
    Yum website.

    It was then transfered the file to the FC3 PC and installed as seen below.

    The errors encountered before the update of yum remain, but have a few
    different line reference numbers.

    So I know that: a) yum was indeed changed, and b)I still am unable to
    use it properly.

    Any ideas out there of what the info below is telling me?
