Smile YUM install errors behind proxy server, Fedora 7

Dear All

I am newbie to linux and using Fedoro 7 (moonshine) for a university based project. Linux details are:

uname -a
2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 #1 SMP Wed May 23 22:35:01 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

yum --version

I have installed same version of linux on my laptop at home and everything works smoothly. But at my uni i have to work behind proxy server. When i try to install packages or dependencies using yum like...

yum install binson-devel (i get these errors)

[root@ncs-clg45-pc06 etc]# yum install bison-devel
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Could not retrieve mirrorlist error was
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: fedora

I followed help for this link and did as they showed, but still get the same above errors.

fedora.repo configuration are as followed:
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - Debug
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

name=Fedora $releasever - Source
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY

If some one could response me on ASAP basis, I shall highly appreciate.

I deleted the spam you put up to get around the URL restriction
and politely ask to refrain from that activity.
