SUSE 9.1 Yast repository issues

All, I am trying to connect to a install software for SUSE 9.1 using Yast and I am not having any luck connecting to a reposity. At first I found that the defualt repositorys are no longer posting 9.1 software, but I found a couple of 9.1 repos and still with everyone I try to connect to I get error 404 "Installation source not found" and I know my spelling is right for the address. Any ideas?

Try pasting those exact urls to your browser. If it connects to the repository (and you'll see a list of items if you have) then it should work. Let me know.

Actually that was the first thing I tried and I could open everyone of the repositories in my browser but they still all get the error 404 when I try to set them as an installation source. It has to be some setting I am missing but I can't figure out what.
