Can you use wget? If so here is the link to the latest, stable i386 rpm from the nmap site:

Code:
wget http://nmap.org/dist/nmap-4.76-1.i386.rpm
Good luck!

Sounds like you've got some network issues. Can you ping anything?

ping linuxquestions.org
ping 75.126.162.205

If that works, it could be a DNS issue. What do you have set in your /etc/resolv.conf file?
