YUM requires public keys, how do I get public keys?

OK, so I got fedora core 3, and I go to install mplayer via the command

# yum -y install mplayer mplayer-skins mplayer-fonts

then it tells me I need public keys, what do I do?

Which repository are you using for yum? If you're using DAG:

Download the GPG-KEY:

In the terminal, type (as root): rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt

PS If you don't know what repository you are using, it'll be found in your /etc/yum.conf file.
