I wanted to install the rpmforge-release package on a new install and get 
the following. Do others have the same problem?

b51:~ rpm -ivvvvvvvh http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-
release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
Retrieving http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-
1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
D:  ... as /var/tmp/rpm-xfer.qQEt9n
D: failed to open http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release
-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm:
error: skipping http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-
0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm - transfer failed - Unknown or unexpected error
D: May free Score board((nil))

wgetting this file and installing is fine.

I then tried another one:
b51:~ rpm -ivh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-
release-5-3.noarch.rpm
Retrieving http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release
-5-3.noarch.rpm

Preparing...                ###########################################

   1:epel-release           ###########################################

so, downloading via rpm is ok.
