I have yum working with dags and dries, etc, but I have done something 
to the main repo file that causes yum to error.  Can anyone tell me what 
is wrong with this file?

 CentOS-Base.repo
#
# This file uses a new mirrorlist system developed by Lance Davis for 
CentOS.
# The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the
# update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and
# geographically close to the client.  You should use this for CentOS 
updates
# unless you are manually picking other mirrors.
#
# If the mirrorlist= does not work for you, as a fall back you can try the
# remarked out baseurl= line instead.

By the way, I have just subscribed to this list, and already see that it 
has it's share of complainers.  I have only used CentOS for a few weeks, 
but I am enjoying the experience.  I tried FC4, but yum would hang each 
time I tried it, so it has been good to have things work.  Good work on 
this distro!  For whatever that is worth from a newbie.  TIA
