Google indicates "Requested Range Not Satisfiable" is actually an HTTP 
error (not specific to yum). The description of the error indicates that 
my browser (yum) requested a segment of the file that does not exist... 
e.g, bytes 10-1000 of a 100 byte file. I'm thinking that this file is 
possibly corrupt or the mirrors think the file is larger than it 
actually is? just a guess...
