Suse 8.1 Yast online update (not working)

Had 8.1 disks for 3 years - never loaded til today.
Installed fine with dual boot w/xp and online...but I'm unable to use the
Yast online update. It times out every time - are these sites outdated since i'm using such an old version of SUse or is something misconfigured?

Appreciate any feedback/assistance.

Yes, 8.1 is VERY outdated.
