Update problem Fedora 3

Hi all,

Please could anyone help with the following prob. My up2date seems to work great but today I tried to update and out of 7 files there was one it refused. This was the yum update.

The error message received is:

Test install failed because of package conflicts:
file /etc/yum.conf from install of yum-2.2.0-0.fc3 conflicts with file from package

Anyone know how I can cure this.

This doesn't look like a standard Fedora package - if you don't recognise it either try "rpm -q" to view the package description to figure out where it came from.
