You seem to be installing python 2.3.x on Fedora Core 5. Fedora Core 5 ships with python 2.4.x, so you are going to cause further problems. In your previous post, you reinstalled python 2.4, so why are you installing python 2.3? In my post above, I mentioned that you should install a package called rpm-python (From the FC5 repos of course), have you done that?

Yes, you have it installed but rpm can't find the module because you broke it when you installed the Mandriva packages. Reinstall rpm-python using --force and --nodeps options.

the --force, --nodeps seemed to proceed smoothly

so where does this come from ?

There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

No module named cElementTree

Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.

You need to install python-elementtree. Use --force --nodeps if rpm says its already installed. It seems like installing Mandriva rpms really borked your python installation. I am not sure if running the rescue CD will be of any help in this situation since you will still have to manually fix the things you broke so why not just do it without the rescue disc.
