looking for yum repo for redhat enterprise 4

Where can i find a redhat el4 repository for yum?
I use dag and dries, but does not look like it has all the software I need. For example, I am looking for xen, but they do not have it.

Xen is probably in the base. You may need to investigate CentOS repos since it sounds like you don't have a subscription to RH.

Have a look at and see what they tell you about setting up their repos

I added the following into /etc/yum.conf ( from
) but it does not seem to work. Do I have to modify anything else?

name=CentOS-$releasever - Base

#released updates
name=CentOS-$releasever - Updates

#packages used/produced in the build but not released
name=CentOS-$releasever - Addons

#additional packages that may be useful
name=CentOS-$releasever - Extras
