It is much easier to stick with installing packages when using Fedora Core 4. The package management system (i.e. RPM) is one of the distribution's strengths, and installing software from source prevents the RPM database from knowing that software is there. I would go to a place like http://rpmfind.net and search for "yum". You will find a list of "noarch" RPMs there, and just download the one for your architecture (presumably i386). Once you have it, a simple

Code:
rpm -ivh yum-2.4.0-8.noarch.rpm
will solve your problems.

Make sure to use Fedora Core's yum package; and not one from somewhere else.
