Thanks Charlie, I'll need to do that for 5. Note that I use up2date to 
get the source for the packages I'm updating, not just arbitrary 
packages as in that example.

The immediate problem, though, is this:

An HTTP error occurred:
URL: http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4/os/i386//SRPMS/grub-0.95-3.8.src.rpm
Status Code: 404
Error Message: Not Found

and I expect that yumdownloader would suffer the same problem.

Since I can (usually if not always) get the src.rpm on the next attempt, 
I'm wondering whether there's a problem with the mirror infrastructure.
