I think there is some wrong with your files under /etc/yum.repos.d ,you may configure them whit a new server.

If your computer is not connected to the internet, then you will get that error since Fedora Core 5 fetches packages from the web by default. You can configure it to use your installation discs (I am sure there are some articles about this in the Fedora Forum).
