Yum.conf for FC3?

I was looking for the pre-configured YUM RPM package from
but it doesn’t seem to exist as of yet. Does anyone have a functional yum.conf
file for the FC3 files on Freshrpms? If so, would you mind posting it?

I don't have the yum files, but the apt version from there works fine. you could use that until they post a new yum package.

why does it HAVE to be the freshrpms files? Why not just use another mirror like I do?

As root. cp /etc/yum.conf to yum.conf.myold
then cp /etc/yum.conf.rpmnew /etc/yum.conf

This fixed up everything for me and yum works like a charm.
