yum can't find servers

I'm trying to get yum working. I just installed yum 2.0.7-2 in FedoraCore1. It is not able to find any servers. This is what I get at the command line:

[root@localhost tomhemba]# yum list
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Linux 1 - i386 - core
retrygrab() failed for:
Executing failover method
failover: out of servers to try
Error getting file
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error >
[root@localhost tomhemba]#

Any suggestions on what I should do to fix this?

You could install yummy ( ) and let it configure your yum-repositories.

Those URLs work fine in my computer, maybe it was just a temporary problem?

Thanks for your reply. I installed yummy and it works well. I was able to get a number of repositories set up except that I'm still not able to set up freshrpms. I've tried mirrors and I've tried apt as well and I've tried a number of times over the last week and I still can't connect to freshrpms.
