Yum and resolution problems

I have just installed fedora 6 on my computer.

1) The first problem is that my yum is not working properly. Example:

[root@cfrro ~]# yum install yumex
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Config Error: File contains parsing errors: file://///etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo
[line 10]: '/i386/\n'
[line 31]: 'i386/debug/\n'

Must I setup somehow the yum ?

2) Resolution of the screen
I try to change the resolution but I have available only 800x600 and 480x600. In windows I work with more than 1000.
I enter in System--> Preferences--> Screen resolution but I have only 2 options: 800x600 and 480x600

I have nvidia gforce MX440 with 64 MB ram. Driver (for WINDOWS): nv4_mini.sys. Where must I look for the driver in Linux ?
My xorg.conf:

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "single head configuration"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nv"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "800x600" "640x480"

I try to install the livna repo
rpm -ivh
but I receive the error message:
error: skipping - transfer failed - Unknown or unexpected error
Segmentation fault

HELP !!!

Can you post the contents of this file? Is it just livna.repo that's returning errors? Can you install from repositories defined in the other repo files?
