You need the key, try updating with up2date, it can get the key automatically

You can either A) Use up2date
Or you can B) Get the key from whichever server you are trying to use and install it with rpm --import http://SERVERURL/KEYURL

This isn't recomended, but you can remove yum's check for the rpm key in the repo conf file. It will ignore this error and continue on installing it for you.

Thanks Corey,

I just used up2date to get the key, than stopped up2date and restarted yum and that seemed to have worked.

Thanks for everyone's help.
