OK -- I "followed directions" as given by:

  
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#How_can_I_install_the_packages_from_the_EPEL_software_repository.3F

and got:

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release
Retrieving http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release
error: skipping 
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release - 
transfer failed - Unknown or unexpected error
warning: u 0x1fe50070 ctrl 0x1fe54370 nrefs != 0 
(download.fedora.redhat.com http)

Seems I need some more hints!

Thank you,
Chip Campbell
