yum repo trouble

I wanted to give SuSe 10 a spin and installation went smooth (as I thought it would)

Since I want to use yum (and perhaps later apt) I followed the howto from Stanton Finley the site

Following what to do isn't hard but I run into problems from the GPG part. Importing the keys seems to go wrong:

error: /usr/share/doc/fedora-release-*/*GPG-KEY*: import read failed.
suse:/home/twinkers #
Hmm, well I thought I could just move on and see what would happen.

yum update gives me:

suse:/home/twinkers # yum update
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories [Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Date: Wed, 26 Oct 2005 20:13:54 GMT

Trying other mirror.
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: core
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from core: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
Error: failure: repodata/repomd.xml from core: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
Deleting this repo and trying again gives me the same error for the other repo's. I can't imagine that the howto is wrong since the guy seems to know what he is doing.
Anyone has a clue what is wrong with this howto or where I'm screwing up?

Those repos are for Fedora Core and not Suse, so I suggest you look for Suse yum repos instead or use YAST.
