error running yum on fc4

I am getting the following error:

# yum update
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories [Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Date: Mon, 05 Jun 2006 10:42:12 GMT
Server: Apache/2.2.2 (Unix)

Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
Trying other mirror.
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: dag
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from dag: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from dag: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

What am I missing for yum to work for updates?

A 404 error means it cant be found, maybe dag has moved/taken off line it's FC4 repo?, the other bits usually happen when it cant reach any mirrors.

Depending on how you have set the repos, in /etc/yum/repos.d/ or in /etc/yum.conf (places may vary its bee na while) you can set enabled=0 in the dag one to skip oer it and still use the others.
