David,

After a "yum clean all" either update or upgrade yum will update to your 
latest:

yum-3.2.8-9.el4.hrb.2.1.2

Currently have the following hrb packages installed:
python-iniparse-0.2.3-4.el4.hrb
yum-fastestmirror-1.1.10-9.el4.hrb.1
yum-metadata-parser-1.1.2-2.el4.hrb
yum-3.2.8-9.el4.hrb.2.1.2
yum-priorities-1.1.10-9.el4.hrb.1

This test VM had not been updated since Dec. 11, 2008.  Running a "yum 
update" using your new yum installed new kernel and kernel-devel, 
removed 3 sets of old kernel packages, and updated 21 other packages 
without incident.

Running either yum update or upgrade with your testing repo enabled now 
offers only to update iptables.

Phil
