Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I changed the yum.conf but, it didn't change anything. All my repos are in /etc/yum.repos.d/ so, I'm assuming I would have to D/L the fedorafaq yum package as well but I am afraid of mixing repositories. I can't see which ones are enabled and which ones aren't from the package. I understand that the livna repositories are not compatible with RPMforge repos.
Is there any way to determine which repository needs to be enabled to meet the dependencies? I also have:
P.S. Spooon - Thanks for the advice. You are absolutely right development code is not normally something I would play with but, I wanted some of the mono apps like beagle and tomboy. At the moment, I think enabling the devel repositories is the only [easy] way to get them

Your output above shows that you have enabled both "nr-mono" and "nr-mono-devel". For mono apps, you only need "nr-mono"; you should go in and disable "nr-mono-devel" because all the apps there should also be in "nr-mono", just that they have newer (unstable) versions of them and seem to require unstable libraries from Fedora Core. (If you must use "nr-mono-devel", which I don't see why you would, you should enable the "development" repository in "fedora-devel.repo".)
If you want an easier way to try different repositories, install yumex from the extras repository, and look at the GUI. Under the "Repos" tab you can check (and uncheck) different repositories to see what effect that has on your problem.
