Problems installing VNC in Fedora Core 4

Hi I an a newbie to Linux, so bear with me. I am trying to install VNC on fedora core 4.
I su to root and run the following command "yum install xinetd vnc vnc-server" and the system returns the following error

Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates-released

How do I fix this?
Thanks in advance.

I'm assuming you've set up the repositories correctly and it hasn't given you any problems with anything else.

I got wind from some Fedora users that the servers were down for maintenance tonight. If you search you might get more information about that. Give it a try tomorrow and post back.

EDIT: Try to go into the <reponame>.repo files in the /etc/yum/repos.d directory and uncomment the baseurl line for each repo. That should give you some immediate results.
