Having a problem with the dries repository and yum

Ok, so I entered the command:

yum -y install amarok
And it gave this output:

Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
core                                                                 [1/6]
dries                                                                [2/6] [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Date: Mon, 20 Nov 2006 20:38:27 GMT
Server: Apache
Content-Length: 373
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
Trying other mirror.
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: dries
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from dries: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from dries: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
And I tried adding --disablerepo=dries but I'm pretty sure that's where the amarok rpm is. Does this error mean that the site is just temporarily down? Is there an alternate repository that I could use in the meantime?

Also, I just tried this again and now it says it can't find a valid baseurl for the core, updates, or extras repositories, either. It wasn't doing that 5 minutes ago. Is something wrong with my machine or is it the servers I'm trying to connect to?
