First, it's not a problem with all http proxies, just the ones that
suck.  Second, it has been addressed.  The method of diagnosing and
fixing it is even in the FAQ.


   1. Get your proxy software/firmware updated so that it properly
implements HTTP 1.1
   2. Use an FTP repository, where byte ranges are more commonly
supported by the proxy
   3. Create a local mirror with rsync and then point your yum.conf to
that local mirror
   4. Don't use yum
