Question Fast Yum Mirror Settings For Yum ( RH9 )


I recently learned about Yum when I installed Fedora Core 1 on my workstation, now I want to run it ( yum ) on my RedHat 9.0 File Server. I have the application installed and the default mirrors setup in my yum.conf file ( at bottom of post ). It works, but its slow just like Fedora was until found a yum.conf file using google.com that had much faster ( for me ) package mirrors. Now I am hoping to find the same for Red Hat.

Can a few people share their yum.conf settings for me to try out?

Thanks in advance.
